Challenge # 5 : Card Challenge: Vintage with Layers and Lace

Welcome to Crafting with Dragonflies challenge # 5
Yes you read correctly NUMBER 5....unbelievable, isn't it??
We have a wonderful challenge for you this fortnight.......
Create a Vintage Card with Layers and Lace
you will either cringe or go YEAHHH!!!
I know that a lot of us hate vintage, all the frills and fru fru that goes with it...but it doesn't have to be like that....Here are some hints....even though I am not an expert, but I have noticed that most true vintage look cards have mainly muted colours
(I find cremes, light pinks, light browns and blues help with the look)
 adding lace and vintage emphemera prints as your backgrounds, layers and extra embellies helps a lot, and you can use all sorts of charms, flowers, tickets, anything.....Hope this helps some....
so give it a go....
...or just check out what our beautiful Dragonflies have created....stunning as always....
so proud.....sigh!!
