Vintage lady with lace

This is for Sweet Stop sketch 90:

The main background paper is Laura Ashley and the striped paper is Making Memories. The 'vintage lady' image is for this week's challenge on Soartful. I've gone for the grey colourscheme for Moxie challenge: gray is the new black. It's also for Crafty Ho's monochromatic theme, Kelly Jo's color chef 69: monochromatic, Cute card Thursday 147: monochrome and Just add ink 51: theme challenge: just add monochrome.

I've used the ingredients for Annabelle's say it with a 1, 2, 3 recipe: 1 border stamp, 2 petals (flowers) and 3 sprinkles (gems).

I used a lace border stamp for Shelly's terrifically thrilling Thursday: use lace on your project - there is also lace printed around the border of the vintage lady image.

The flowers were stamped with funstamps paisley background and dovecraft brads used. I've deliberately put one flower over the edge for Stamp insanity 42: let it all hang out! - let your creativity flow past the edges of your paper

This is also for 2 sisters 21: gettin' girly - lace, gems, vintage lady
