Vintage black and white

This is for this week's sketch on Crafty sentiments, which also calls for the use of flowers - these are on one of the papers:

The image is from the Hunkydory vintage ladies collection. The main background paper is BG offbeat and I'm afraid I can't remember whether the floral paper is Dovecraft or DCWV.

I'm also linking this card for:

Flourishes timeless 64: 'vintage'
Theme Thursday: 'black and white'
Magical crafts fortnightly 13: 'something for the girls'
Charisma cardz 17: 'girly card with flowers'
Mixed media Monday: 'I feel pretty'
Caardvarks: 'monochromatic'

With sympathy

This card is for sketch 164 on CPS:

I recycled a piece of card that was the backing for some PM stickers for the background of the textured rub-ons, which are The Creata heritage collection - pity the texture doesn't show up here like it does irl.

The card is also for:

Fiskarettes Monday challenge: 'recycle'
Little paper shop 65: 'let's get a little colour challenged - banana, lilac and white' - there isn't much white, but it is there on the gingham ribbon
