The Lovely Vivienne

Good afternoon to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.   It is very, very chilly here and we have had our first snow of the winter.  Looking out of the window I can see a huge flock of Fieldfair's ( a type of Thrush)  who have come in from the fields to feast on the Holly Berries on the tree next door. 

Back onto my card for today.  I have used Kanban Stamp Set  - Vivienne to create the card.  I have a sort of a Wardrobe shape going on in the front and the doors open onto an inner image with tag.  I have then attached this to a  6" X 6" card base. 

Pro Marker and Flex Marker pens have been used to decorate the stamped images and I have used some little jewels for decoration.  The papers are from my stash and the edges have been distressed using vintage ink to give a more vintage look .  The patterned backing papers are Hot of the Press.  I have also used Brads, tassel's and vintage ribbon seam binding from my stash.  I have made the mini roses using a Cheery Lynn Design cutting die.

I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges :o)

Showing the inside of the 'wardrobe' with another stamped, coloured dress image and matching papers and background stamped with the same stamp set and the edges of the card have been distressed.  A pocket has been made and a double decorated label is in the pocket for recording of a greeting.

This is the decorated inside of the card with matching papers and stamped and coloured images.  The greeting is ' Wishing you a Magical Birthday' a stamp from Lili of the Valley mounted onto a Spellbinder die cut.   There is a further panel for a message on the inside of the card and again I have stamped and distressed the backing card.

Thank you for reading this post. 

Sending warmest wishes to all of you on this snowy day.
