"Vintage Gorjuss"!!

I made this card this morning, well for the past 5 hrs
actually!!! after seeing the Truly Scrumptious Sketch.
What a fab layout it was to work with, I loved it!
Oval shapes always remind me of Cameo brooches so
I thought I would put my Gorjuss girl in the centre and
make the card vintage style. The theme is Flower Power
so have embellished with lots of different flowers and
rose buds! The papers are from K & Co Classic, the
Lace and Orange Ribbon (from stash) I have inked
and left to dry, the orange was really bright and needed
toning down a tad to match the flower see....................
The lace paper border around the picture is a "Make Me"
punch I've had for ages, it actually makes round doily
shapes so I made a few and distressed them, see.....

and then stuck them underneath. Image is coloured
using my water colour pencils and distressed with
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo. The image I stamped onto
cream parchment paper. The sentiment is computer
generated and little heart brads are from stash!
Think that's everything TFL Sue xx
