Feeling A Little Vintage? Or Not!



I had no set idea in mind when I created this card. It just sort of evolved as it went along. It does remind me, though, of the Nursery Rhyme, "Mary, Mary, quite Contrary, how does your garden grow?" After it was finished, I felt like it had a bit of a vintage look to it. (But then maybe I'm crazy and don't know what I'm talking about!) I'm really not the vintage type and wouldn't have an idea where to start, if I wanted to... So this is outside the comfort zone for me. I do feel like it came out quite nice, though.

The Digi image is from Designed2Delight. The background paper, which has a vintage feel to it, is from Hobby Lobby. Ive had this paper for a long time, and could never figure out what to do with it. Flowers are from Prima. The gold beading is from Michael's.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
