Back in time/vintage - Rhedd & Rosie's DT

Good morning everyone!

I must once again apologise for my absence. We spent a few days in London over the half term holidays, and I'm afraid I'm still recovering (or at least trying to!) from that. The kids had a really great time though, even though it was pretty wet and miserable for the most part!

Anyways, on to the new challenge at Rhedd & Rosie's! The theme this fortnight is Back in time/vintage, which is one I always enjoy, but I think I kinda surprised myself here by not sticking to my usual palette of browns for the vintage theme! lol.
In fact, I fancied doing something completely different, so did a centre step card, which I hadn't done for over a year!
And, there's absolutely no stamping whatsoever either! *shock*

Now, I couldn't stay away from all my favourite things, hence the lace and flowers and general shabby chic feel...
The image was from a vintage flip pad I picked up in the Works last time I had a voucher to redeem. It has both portraits and flowers, and is well worth the 99p even without a voucher! lol.
The dies I used to frame the portrait are from Crafts Too, and I picked up the butterfly pegs in Samuel Taylors. Flowers are of course WOC, and the lace is from Hobbycraft, and probably my favourite lace I own. I will likely cry when I run out! lol.
And I can't for the life of me remember where the resin roses are from. But I loves them :-)

Now, my fellow teamies have created some stunning eye candy for you all, as always, and there's a fab prize up for grabs for the lucky winner!

So pretty! I'm just imagining all the pretty shabby things I could make with those gorgeous papers! So off you go and join in, you know you want to!

Have an awesomesauce day!

This beautiful card is definitely a persuasive argument for challenging yourself to do something different every now and then; it's just gorgeous!
The stepper design is fab and I love the image framed by the swirls :-)
Hugs, Kat x
