Hello Everyone.... Saturday afternoon and it is Art Deco Weekend here in Napier New Zealand..
All the lovelies are parading around in fur stoles..gorgeous dresses and posh hats and the blokes look mighty dapper too....their Vintage cars are polished within an inch of their life..and the old steam train is running the tracks blowing his whistle and letting off steam and over head the old planes are swooping and looping...and I'm sitting inside out of the sun doing nothing..my day off and will spend it just how I need to...lol..not the whole day as I still go out and do my personal cares but it's a relaxing time in between..
Onto my card for today...and must admit I'm so very proud of this one....have attempted many times to make a vintage card and was just never happy with them..but today..wel..I'm a happy camper..
I used fabulous Prima Papers -En Francis Collection...new they would come in handy one day..
Vintage lace from 'My Lady' and a strip of tatting too...flowers from WOC...Cameo from my win from Susan's Candy [a long long time ago..]...Kaisercraft doily nestled behind spellbinders cirlce die and pearls added around the edge....
All the edges have been distressed and inked..the sentiment tickets I made myself on the pc and cut and inked them..
The beautiful chipboard butterfly I found in Australia last year at the craft show..
WOC metal corner embellie was pressed into versamark embossing ink and then cover with embossing powder and the lonely blue flower is purple in real life.
A close up of the Cameo and sentiment tickets...but I felt it needed something else...soooo...
I added pearls around the Cameo for a frame..
What a shame the rose has changed colour..looks so lovely on my dresser with the purple...
A close up of the beautiful Lady...
