Vintage Best Wishes

Good  morning. I'm a little earlier with my post today than yesterday and I may even be back with another later :o) as it is pouring down here today so what could be better than hiding away in my little crafty haven and having a good crafty session :o)

My share (for now) is for the fab Diamonds & Pearls challenge at Lil's :Little Fairies this week.
I have more LOTV stamps than any other brand and yet I still miss their challenges sometimes - so I was determined not to miss it this week :o)

The image I have used today is gorgeous 'Pretty Bouquet' and I have coloured her with Flexmarkers - I love the muted tones of these colours.
The srummy DP's are Prima 'Nature Garden' from My Crafty Heart

I heat embossed the Spellbinders Fleur di Lis rectangle mat using Versamark and Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Crystal Sparkle EP for a diamond like sparkle.
The edges of the image have been inked with Old Paper Distress Ink.

Felt flower die cut using Spellbinders floral die and an American Crafts pearl brad added to the centre.
Brads and lace from stash.
Sentiment - Creative Expressions.

Challenges I would like to enter:
Lil's Little Fairies - Diamonds & Pearls
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft - Material Girl
Scrap Creations - It's a Girl Thing
Tuesday Throwdown - Use Some Sparkle
Dream Valley - Earth Tones
Pile it On - Sparkle & Shine
Truly Scrumptious - Distressing & Die Cuts/Punches
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes

Thanks for your visit today - please let me know you have been so I can visit you too.
Have a fabulous day - stay warm and dry :o)
