Once Upon a Time

Good Morning Everyone,

Hope you all had a good weekend.  Mine seemed to consist of cleaning and more cleaning and eventually some time in my craft room to create today's card.  The theme this week is "Once upon a time".  Now I pondered over this and had all the usual fairytale stories coming to mind, but I also thought that all these stories are very old, way back in time.  When I was flicking through my images I came across this little lady from Grandma's Attic Warm Clothes sheet and she reminded me of a picture taken of me when I was a child and No, I'm not vintage yet, lol, but her fur coat is very similar to one I was wearing by the Christmas Tree..... so.... Once upon a time there was a little girl in her new winter coat............

I have used two papers from the Maya Design Sofiero collection, Princess Margaret and Royal Summer Residence. All edges have been distressed with Walnut stain and dustings of both snow tex and aged rose frantage added here and there.

I have used some of the new cream and pink flower sprays along with roses from the the wild orchid craft collection and some of the new foam flowers, topped off with a pearl pin,  I have also added some of the new Melissa Frances pleated satin ribbon in cream, beautiful and speaking of Melissa Frances the tag has been placed in a Melissa Frances pink vellum envelope and the tag tied with pink seam binding and some tulle.

 The metal rose was embossed with aged rose frantage and added to the centre of the vintage ornament.
