A Vintage Autumn

     This was one of the last cards I got to make before all the paper crafting supplies got boxed up for the move and I'm proud to say that it's my Guest DT card for this week's 'Anything goes' challenge at Scribble & Scrap. The image is a magnificent one from the Scribble & Scrap shop called "Vintage 3."  If you haven't been to the shop before, you really should go explore it.  More is being added all the time.

I used a sketch from I {heart} Sketches, elongated to fit the image
and the colors are from There She Goes.
Card Sketch Challenge Pattern no. 37  

     Isn't she marvelous?  Maybe it's because fall is my favorite season but I thought she'd be perfect done in muted fall colors.  Of course, I can see her done up in spring pastels, too, or even summer brights.  This time, she's colored with ProMarkers and then die cut with that magnificent Cheery Lynn frame.  I did two cuts with that die; one on the image (the white) and a second cut on brown CS.  I fit the white image piece into the brown frame, then matted it with pumpkin CS.

     The leaves are also from a Cheery Lynn die.  All the flowers were in my stash.  I added pearls to the corners and a few places on the frame, plus in some of the flower centers in the image.  They don't show up as well in the photograph but IRL they just shine!
