A little bit of vintage today


I've spent a lazy Sunday afternoon making this card using a few of my purchases from the Stitching Show at Manchester yesterday.  Have to say that for the long drive, I was a little disappointed with the show, don't know why really, as I found the couple of felting demos and the Every Crafts a Pound stalls fabulous but that was it really, I was however, super impressed by the Trafford Centre which was right next door, so I had a mooch round there after and bought a couple of  baby outfits for Holly's bump!
Any hoo, onto my card, and the items that I bought at the show were the little frame below, and the Memory Box roses corner dies that was reduced. I already had the image and papers from previous shows.
The little face inside the frame above was in a wooden embellishment set from the Works and the metal corner and bark heart below were also in my stash. The background papers are mostly Stampin Up and I've used a ton of Aged Ivory Frantage which I love.  I remember to apply it to the layers prior to sticking them together too so I've made progress! 
This gorgeous wooden crinolined lady was from another show - isn't she so elegant and the little flower embelllie was in the same pack as the framed lady. 
Finally, the little trinket below was from an old earring set, I love it when my hoarding comes good! 
I've also used a Fiskars border punch  for the second roses mat and some fab vintage looking sequins with an added pearl. Oh and aren't the chiffon roses with a pearl centre divine - just wish I could remember where I bought it from.  Of course, there has  to be some Marianne goodness in there and it's that gorgeous new embossed flourish corner which has only just been released! Full details of Marianne products below:

Think it's the last of War and Peace tonight on the box, I just love it. Fire's on and we're all warm and toasty and ready to enjoy!
