Vintage Flowers!

Oh this is such a wonderful Friday Mashup challenge this week, thank you so much Kathy, it's right up my alley using two of my favourite things Vintage and Flowers!  Oh and isn't the inspiration photo just divine?

So for me I started out using my newly accquired distressing kit and inked, distressed, tore, sanded and then inked some more.  Then I got out a stash of flowers that well, aren't SU but I just couldn't resist using them here.  I sponged Cherry Cobbler onto some lightly and then more heavily to give several shades of Red on the finished flowers.  I'm really happy with the end result.

There was also the urge to use some retired hodgepodge hardware, this is aged copper and the ribbon just seemed to call out for this design, yes I know I'm loosing it!  But you do know what I mean, sometimes things just fall into place.

The colours I've used here are Sahara Sand, Early Expresso and Cherry Cobbler, with Vanilla satin ribbon and more aged copper brads and buckle over the Early Expresso DSP which has also been inked and distressed.

Hope this card inspires you to get vintage and floral, head on over to the Friday Mashup Challenge blog and check out what the DT girls have made for you.
