Vintage snippets

I have seen some lovely vintage cards using Kraft recently, so thought I would have a go too. I had several snippets of floral papers lying around, so combined them to make this:

The papers are mostly from Pink Petticoat, the pinches and dies are from Tonic and the stamps are an Inkylicious butterfly and a Dog Rose from Innovative Stamp Creations, both coloured with promarkers. I aged the edges with Tea Dye DI and some piercing.
 I used some gold tulip paint and some mini roses to finish it off. I am entering this into the following challenges:
Allsorts - Vintage
By the Cute and Girly - Vintage
Di's Crafty Snippet Playground - this card is virtually all snippets. Sorry I've not been here Di. I've been away so long you probably thought I'd run away with the fair, lol!
Update on Dad, despite having got a bit confused during the night as to which side of the bed to get out, he is sounding much more chipper and enjoying the footy. Thanks for all your good wishes.
Thanks for looking x

  2. Hi Sal, sorry to have missed yesterdays post, I'm trying to fit everything in before we go on Thursday, but pleased to read Dad is doing OK.

    Kraft and pinks lend themselves to each other really well and a lovely feel of Spring - should I explain the concept, it usually happens about now.

    Thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts.

  7. Really pretty papers to go with the Kraft Sally and with the beautiful stamped images and embellishments your card is very feminine as well as vintage. Absolutely lovely!

    So glad your Dad is doing well. It doesn't take much to confuse me in the middle of the night if I'm in a strange place either, lol!

  13. Glad to hear your Dad is managing & that he's content with a distraction to keep him from trying things too soon. Pink & Kraft is a lovely combination & I like your touch of blue.
