Vintage and Lace...Fussy and Fancy



Hello Everyone....what a fast, but long week this week....
I was having a nice snooze this morning and stretched in my half dazed sleep and something went POP!!!...yep...put my back out...it didn't half hurt getting out of bed, but I limbered up after a while, but work was a bit rough..tight up the top this time in between my shoulder blades, awfyul place as you cant reach it to rub it...

Never mind, could have been worse, so onto a new challenge for Fussy and Fancy...and this week we are looking for.............VINTAGE AND LACE....[no pressure]

Now I'm not a vintage sort of person and struggle a bit with it...so here goes.



There we are....the beautiful silhouette was a freebie from Create with TLC  and I was just playing around with printing on papers and this one popped right in the middle of this gorgeous paper 'Authentique' - 'Gathering Collection'...so there are no layers, as the image was there and no mucking around...when I start doing that things go wrong..lol..

The lace is from a ball gown, and I  purchased a bag full of pieces, 2 years ago from an outlet store opened for one weekend right by 'My Lady's' house...and this is the first time using any of it...needed a bit of trimming, but very pretty.

The birds I bought when on holiday, they are plastic and look gorgeous on top of wedding boxes..flowers from Woc..



There's a side view and you can see how 3D the birds are..[dont look LISA...  scary birds...lol..]..
and they do look better on top of a box...

The same paper on the inside...and there is my Vintage with lace card...

                                                                THE END....

That was very long winded tonight.....love you to come back later as my Stampfairy card is next...

Would like to enter this card into a challenge at Tuesday Alchemy  [Vintage]
Thanks for stopping by, will see you later...

Luv CHRISSYxx
