Very Vintage

A card made with some geriatric Hunkydory stash today, that I've had for years and was due an airing!  I gave my Promarkers the day off and used a pre-coloured topper, which is quite unusual for me, but I do like to mix things up a bit every now and then, and come out of my alcohol pen comfort zone.
 The topper and backing paper are from Hunkydory, to which I added some cream cardstock for matting, distressing all the edges with my Tim Holtz tool and I also added a touch of Rusty Hinge Distress Ink to further shabbify the edges.
To embellish, I added some cream lace, apricot ribbon with a matching button topped bow, a Craftwork Cards sentiment which just happened to be exactly the right colour, a whole heap of handmade daisies and foliage, made with Woodware punches and inked with more Rusty Hinge ink, flourished cut with a Joanna Sheen Signature die, some cream pearls, and lastly a row of blue gems on the topper.
