Roaring Twenties

Hi!  Today I am sharing one of two cards I made using a digi image I won recently from the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog

She's such a sweetie!  I thought a cool blue and neutral colour scheme would go well with her, and it was an ideal opportunity to use some of the luscious papers from my Fancy Pants "It's the little things" pad and some ribbon by East of India that I got at Ally Pally, which I thought looked a bit vintage-y to go with the image

It was also an ideal opportunity to make my own flowers (pick yourselves up off the floor!) using the lovely felt from Ladybug Crafts Ink and my Sizzix flower die, not bad for a first attempt at making these with felt, although I needed a bit of sparkle in there, so added a cabochon gem to the centre of each

The ticket is made up from my Papertrey Ink set, and I gave the edges of al the papers a distressed/aged look with a caramel coloured chalk eye

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges

My Time to Craft - Scallops (hope the scalloped border punch counts)

That's it from me today!  Hope you have a great day, more tomorrow

Wow! Just fantastic!!! Love the colors, the felt flowers (sneaky use of scallops);-), the papers and the sentiment ticket is the icing on the cake. Your card is just perfect for our scallops challenge at My Time To Craft, thanks for joining us this week.
