Vintage Bee Hive
Vintage cards I admit, make me run in horror - I've never really succeeded with them the few times I've tried them, but, a first time for everything and I'm pretty happy with this one!
I used a freebie image from The Graphics fairy - which I left untouched - although I'm almost wishing now I'd changed it from black to brown, but never mind.
The papers are from the Botanical Collection and I got them free with simply cards and papercraft magazine this month, layered on brown card.
I used some fabric flowers from my stash, some stitching, some gems and a brad to embellish and the sentiment is from skipping stones designs, the banner cut with die-namics dies.
I also decorated the inside of the card - rare for me, since I usually leave the inside unfinished until I see who I'm sending a card too - with more papers from the same range, and a stamp from skipping stones.
I'm submitting this to:
