Vintage Birthday

Our challenge this fortnight at Crafting With Dragonflies is vintage/shabby chic. Now I don't make a lot of cards in this style, but I love all the elements of it. We have 2 sponsors this week, Eureka Stamps and A Day For Daisies, which means we will have 2 prize winners as well as a top 3! Be sure to follow the rules to be eligible to win (be a follower, no backlinking, follow the theme) and I look forward to stopping by!
I chose Quiet Fairy from A Day For Daisies for my card. I made this for my sister-in-law's 45th birthday. We even made it to Saskatoon to celebrate with her. The scroll work background was a Silhouette cut file cut from patterned paper. Gerbera daisies are her favorite flower so I used the daisy pattern paper, cut in a heart shape, and stitched around it, behind my image. The image frame was another Silhouette file that I also added stitching to. For embellishments I used a tulle rose found at my LSS, pearl pins, lace ribbon, a copper colored metal heart and half backed pearls in the corners. All very vintage/shabby chic elements. My fairy was colored with Prismacolor pencils and I used Liquid Pearls Platinum Pearl on her wings.

Aunty and the girls!
