Vintage Chilling

     I'm sharing another card with an image from Ching-Chou Kuik where I was lucky enough to win in two different challenges, one sponsored by them and the other as part of their FB blog hop.  I'm going to be coloring their glorious images for several days now.  :-D   Here's the first card I've done with one of my new images and I'll have another one later next week.

     I knew as soon as I saw this image that I wanted to do something fancy and vintage looking.  But it still needed to be flat enough for easy mailing.  I colored with ProMarkers, white gel ink, and a sparkle gel pen.  I cut the image with a die from Spellbinders.

     I used another Spellbinders die to cut the blue star dp, then used it to frame the image piece.  I found the lace in my stash.  It's one of those "have to have" purchases which get put away and forgotten so this is the first time I've ever used it.   Another "new" thing for my card. 

     The background paper is also new, purchased last week from the open stock papers at my favorite scrapbooking store.  I cut a 5.5" x 5.5" piece and put that onto the card front.  Then I added the lace and the double framed image.  I printed the sentiment and die cut it before adding it to the bottom of the image.

     I found a tiny scrap of thin, white, braided twine, tied it into a bow, and layered it onto the sentiment piece.  Finally, I used 3 sets of three pearls each (also a new purchase); one set on each side and one set at the top of the image.
