Vintage Child Image

I've wanted to make this card for a whole week now, but since I've barely been at home I haven't got any playtime in my craftroom until today. My layout is inspired by the sketch over at House of Cards. My papers are from Fabscraps, and I've used a pre-colored image from Nicecrane, you can find it here.  I cut it out with a Spellbinder die and used two others to make the silver frame. For the leaves I used a die from Memory Box. The crocheted flowers I bought on a sale, the brads are from my stash. I stamped a greeting on a strip of paper and curled up the edges with the help of a paintbrush for a for a vintage feel. I machine stitched with white thread.

This card is for these challenges:
1) House of Cards - Sketch (Vintage)
2) A Gem of a Challenge -  #126 STITCHING
3) Dies R Us Challenge - Die cuts and Stitching
4) Crafty Creations - 2W - #269 Flower
5) Shopping Our Stash - #164 Back In The Day
6) Sweet Stamps - #182 In The Garden

I also want to remind you of my candy - I'll give away 2 issues of "Cardmaking and Papercraft"and the freebies that came with these magazines. You can check out the details HERE.
