Cherished Memories

Happy Saturday my friends!

When I saw these challenges I could not resist since they where about some of my favorite things!

Fashionable Stamping Challenge with "In Time gone by"  and

Charisma Cardz Challenges with Lace and Pearls.

I love all that is Vintage so In time gone by was very exciting for me to plan I had a composition in mind.... God, it's never been so hard for me to come up with a final creation.... I started over 3 times... the paper were not right, the corlors were not god... so on, so on.  When I decided to go with this composition I still had doubts... but finally I'm pleased with the results.

Lace and Pearls are some of my favorite embellishments.  I knew all the long how and where I wanted to place it!

Sooooooo this is the final compostition:

Stamps: text Hero Art, little girl unknown
Papers: Prima Sweets
Dried flowers: from my garden
Embellishments:  metallic frames, heart & key, mica tiles, ribbon, lace, pearls,
Inks: Ranger Distress:  Walnut stain & Worn lipstick.

This card will be entered in :

Lovely, Francine! I love the close-up photo of the girl (a stamp I think). The way it is positioned unifies the pieces of the collage. Well done!
