vintage get well

I have had another attempt at shabby chic with this get well card using a bought image mounted onto card.

I cut a border for the image out of card and tinted with vintage photo with a little perfect pearl to give it a bit of a shine. I cut the tag out of the same card stamped the sentiment with sepia ink and added some tinted twine.
All the flowers and leaves, the border and the doily, which I cut in half, were cut out of cream card and tinted with vintage photo distress ink.
I distressed and tinted the pink polka dot paper stamped the fany corners with sepia ink and matted onto the base card. I die cut the bottom edge of the floral paper, glued it to the cream card and added the pink lace.
The butterfly was made with double sided adhesive paper and gilding flakes. I finished with some pale pink organza ribbon, a gem in the center of the flower and a few sequins.

get well

The theme for Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week is Pretty Papers and I used one of the lovely designs from the Craft Nouveau paper stack by Kraftyhands for this card.

I layered it on to pink card and layered the image, which I have coloured with Spectrum Noir, on to the same card. I also cut the Anja flower border and the flower out of the same pink card and backed the flower with a darker pink.
To assemble I added some pink lace on the left hand side. I cut the birds out of a patterned buff coloured card, added a gem to the flower center and used liquid pearl for the border flower centers. I finished with a butterfly cut from the darker pink card.
