Today is the Vintage Cafe Card Challenge and this one is to use flourishes.
Who doesn't love flourishes, they are so pretty and vintage, anyway you use them!
I used 2 of the new Crafty Secrets stamp sets, Mini Frames and Grand Greetings. I mounted the image on a piece cut with my Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals SM. I mounted that on a paper doilie that I trimed a little so it would have a straight edge. The card base is Neenah Solar White cardstock and the pattern papers are from the Creating with Vinatge Patterns CD. The flourishes are from Maya Road, I painted them with my Ranger Snowcap paint dabber and sprinkled glitter on the wet paint. The white felt flower is cut with MFT rolled flower die and I put a Kaiser pearl in the center and some more at the top of the stamped frame. The white leaf is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I trimmed off the right edge of the card front about 1/2" and adheared the vintage lace on the inside of the card front. I put a strip of the pattern paper on the back inside edge.
