Wed. Aug. 24, 2011 Vintage Birthday

I have been meaning to try and make a fabric flower with my TH die, and since I liked how it came out- the idea for this card came about. Years ago I pick up a bunch of home decor fabric samples, and I liked this brocade type fabric for my flower.

I used some pretty bg paper, ribbon and lace from Webster's pages.  I used part of a Cheery Lynn doily, which I sponged with Old Paper distress ink.  The little metal dragonfly is from Pink Paisley. I think the distressing around the edges adds to the vintage feel. The sentiment and the label are from Nina's "Fanciful Tags" stamp set, and the pearls are from my stash.

Thank you for checking in today!
