The challenge for Marianne Design Divas is Black and White or 2 favourite colours. I think my 2 favorite colours depends on the style of card so for a vintage style card I am using light blue and brown.

I used 3 Melissa Francis papers for the backing papers, distressed the edges with vintage photo which I also used on the die cuts and lace. I coloured the seam binding with Spectrum Noir which gave it a faded look. The picture is mounted on chipboard and dimensionals.
MD dies used LR0156, LR0157, LR0248, LR0241 and CR1273

I am entering this in the following challenges:-
MilkCoffee Lots of Layers
Whoopsie Daisy Distress
Marianne Design Divas Favourite Colours

The In the Pink challenge was to use different folds. This is what I came up with

Using pink card as a base I placed the Anja corner die on the fold and cut another piece with the majenta card cutting out and using just the center.
I cut round the pink patterned paper with the corner die and stuck it on the front and inside.
I made a 1 inch step on the front and cut the flowers out of pink card using MD CR1273 and stuck it to the front step.
I cut 2 strips of majenta card and punched along one edge. I added some lace and stuck to the sides of the card. 
I die cut a frame for Daisy out of majenta card using MD CR1242 and added to the center of the card.
I printed the sentiment and added to one corner. I finished with some punched paper butterflies and some gems on the flowers.
