Sketch -blues, whites and browns

My inspiration for this card I got from a sketch at Frosted Designs. I am sure that I will use this sketch  several times in the future!

I wasn't planning to go for a vintage style when I started out, I meant to keep the card rather clean, and I think I ended up with a result somewhere in between...

I have used three different design papers, flowers, lace, ribbon and a metal butterfly. The image is cut out from a design paper, the text is stamped.

I enter his card into the following challenges:
1) Frosted Designs -Sketch #16
2) Crafts and Me - #80 Vintage
3) Prairie Fairy Fridays - #77 Anything with Flowers
4) Paper Pretties - Card for Girls
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
6) Whoopsi Daisy - Anything Goes
7) Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes
8) Craft Your Days Away - #42 Metal
9) Shelly's Images - Anything goes

This is lovely Pia! I really like the elongated shape. I don't vary from a square very often although I love shaped cards. Very pretty combination of elements and design. Thank so much for visiting my blog. Hugs!

Well Pia, you've created a gorgeous card here. I love the curves the die around the sentiment and the floral spray is lovely with that tiny bow and the crocheted lace is superb. A fantastic image you've highlighted as well. :)

Thank you so much for linking up your talent and creative ideas with us at Make It Monday!

I love the vintage look - isn't it funny how cards don't always turn out the way you intend - this happens to me all the time!

Thanks for joining us a CYDA for our Use Metal Challenge!
