Vintage/Shabby Chic & Not For A Dude!!!

Good Evening All,
I have a ladies card to share with you today!
I made it a little while ago, but I couldn't post it at the time as the 
recipient hadn't received it yet!
It was made for someone associated with a 
Theatre Group Costume Department
Hence the Shabby Chic Theme!


The image I've used is one of the Dress Form Trio images from 
Deborah Moore at The Crafty Pad Designs.
It's so versatile & suitable for many occasions!
The sentiment was created in my graphics program.
The base card was a brown 5x5 square card blank.
I added a matt of Cored'inations card which I tore around the edges
& rubbed with some Distress ink in Antique Linen.
Next I added a page from a very old book of 
"The Works Of Shakespeare" 
(I checked it's not valuable before I started to tear out the pages!)
This page is from The Taming Of The Shrew!
It was also subjected to the distress ink treatment after 
being crumpled then flattened out again!
I added a little piece of lace edging which was also distressed with ink.

The flower is one of a big package I received from Lee aka Crafty Loops
a while back! Her flowers are absolutely fantastic!
You'll see them popping up on my projects from time to time!
Just under the flower is a little metal measuring tape charm

I also added a pair of scissors with a tiny safety pin & a couple 
of buttons just to finish the card off!
I hope you like my card! 
I was really chuffed that the person I made it for was delighted!

Here's my little DT card

The image the DT were given to play with this week is 
Oliver is available at The Crafty Pad Designs Store,
I have used the uncoloured version & coloured him up with my promarkers!
I made my own Design Papers using tiles from the Woodsy Clip Art Collection
