Vintage For A Lady - Paper Play DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
Firstly I want to say a massive thank you for all your lovely comments about yesterdays post, I haven't managed to get round & visit you all to thank you but I will do my best to :)

Today is new challenge day at
& this weeks challenge is

The card I have to share today I made a few weeks ago as I had a last minute order to make a birthday card for Jodie's friends Nan & I kept it in reserve with this challenge in mind which is a good job I did as this flipping cold is driving me nuts & I'm not achieving much at the moment as for me coughs & sneezes cause repeated shoulder dislocations. So many of you have said you have been suffering with it for weeks now & it's a cross between a cold & the flu so you have my full sympathy. There's always a bright side, sales of Olbas Oil, Kleenex & Lemsip must have soared so we are keeping people in jobs lol.
Ingredients -
Image - free on the Internet (sorry I can't remember which site)
Papers - Pion
Flowers - Kort & Godt, Prima & stash
Pearls - Melissa Frances & stash
Sentiment - Magnolia
Twine - Hemptique
Lace - eBay
 Tools - MS PATP, Magnolia Doo Hickey heart swirls & swirl, Cheery Lynne butterflies, Memory Box rolled flower die, sewing machine

I have stamped a small Magnolia accessory stamp around the paper edges in Vintage Photo distressed ink & distressed all the paper edges in the same ink. The small Cameo is a button that I carefully cut the back off, the pin is homemade & the sparkle is crystal glamour dust & I added a few clear gems here and there for a little bit of bling.
There are loads of embellies on this one, shame I didn't have more time to take some better piccys but it was such a rush I almost didn't get it photographed at all.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Little Darlings - pearls, The Paper Shelter - add a sentiment, Penny's Paper Crafty - anything goes, Ruby's Rainbow - Vintage,  Deep Ocean - pink & brown, Digital Tuesday - make it sparkle, Make It Monday - anything goes, Make My Monday- Victorian romance, 2 Sisters - stitching, Allsorts - free & easy February, Crafty Emma's - spots & dots, Totally Gorjuss - lace
Have a good day & thanks for stopping by
