Vintage Sunday!

Morning all & A Very Happy Sunday to you!
This week at The Crafty Pad for
Challenge #142 Vintage
We want to see your Vintage Projects!
Now Vintage isn't a thing I do very often but I did have fun with this one!
When I started, I had something totally different in mind but hey ho, that was not to be!
Here's what I came up with!

It's a simple little A6 white linen card as the base.
 I added a matt of brown craft paper them a matt of the text paper,  
which I had scrumpled up then attacked with some distess inks in 
Antique Linen & Fired Brick!
I added a diagonal cut section of Core'dinations cardstock.
I then added a section of design paper from Papermania
Next was the netting which I let hang over the edges of the card as I like the effect! 
I cut a little slot in each side to allow the ribbon to be threaded through!
 This week we were given the Dress Form Trio set to work with!
These are fab images & are great fun to work with!
I have to say this card is truly vintage as the text paper I have used is from a 
Complete Works of  Shakespeare book which is very old!
I did check before I used it that it's not a valuable book!

I printed out the dress form on to some Core'dinations cardstock 
then tore around the image. I fixed it using foam tape for a bit of dimnsion.
The With Love sentiment ticket is from The Crafty Pad Designs also!

The fab fluffy flower is one of the selection I got from Lee AKA A Wee Bit Of Crafty Loops!
Isn't it beautiful!
Sorry Lee I attacked it a bit with distress inks to tone down the colour al little!
I must remind you all Lee had awesome candy on her blog!
I added a little ribbon detail behind the flower as well as a couple of feathers & home made stick pin!
A few little pearls in two of the corners to finish off & it's done!
I was very pleased with the results!
