Reminiscent of a bygone era

The papers I've used for this card are from the Papermania Persimmon collection 'reminiscent of a bygone era' - hence the title of this blogpost.

This card is for Annabelle ABSC045 sketch:

It features spots and stripes for the current Daring cardmakers challenge (there was an extra week for this challenge, but I'm still submitting an entry on the final evening!).

The scalloped circles were cut with nesties, edges distressed with stormy sky DI and the white shape stamped with part of the Penny Black sparklers stamp inked with stormy sky and clear heat embossed. Just the addition of a strip of flowers and a few half pearls from Hobbycraft.

This is also for:

Some odd girls: bling me - at least 2 types of bling - heat embossing and half pearls
Paper creations ink 16: die cuts and/or punches
Paper sundaes 101: something old, something new - papers are new, nesties are old
Fab n funky 102: something new - the papers

There is celebration candy over on my CHNC blog
