Sarah Hurley Challenge - Vintage

Hi Folks,

Apologies for the lack of input this week but it's been a bit crazy what with our classes starting up again and Jules being on holiday (I love having him home but I lose my routine completely!)

This is my first Challenge as part of the Sarah Hurley Design Team and if you would like to join in you can find all the details here.

The theme of the Challenge is Vintage and we are very lucky to be sponsored by Altered Expression who very generously provided us with some beautiful images to work with.  Check them out - really inexpensive to download and there is a huge range to chose from.  Altered Expression will be giving gift certificates to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners, so don't miss out! (There is $20 up for grabs for first place, $10 for second place and $5 for third place) - so please check out the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog.

This is my card:

I aged the backing paper (from my stash) and my chosen image with Distress Inks and then went round the edges lightly with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder to give it a gilded edge.  I matted and layered these on to brown and pink card to pick up the colours in the image.  I added a strip of lace and gathered a small piece of the same lace to make a rosette and added some pearls.

Hope you like my what I've made and please do join in the challenge - we can't wait to see your creations.

Lots of Love,
