Crafty Secrets DT Challenge "Retro Inspiration"

Good morning blogging friends! Today, is the Crafty Secrets Design Team Challenge. Each month our DT Coordinator, Vicki Chrisman picks a theme for us to work with and this month the theme is Retro Inspiration. Here is the card that I designed for the challenge. The fun image of the lady is from the Girlfriends Creative Scraps. The floral background paper was printed from the Creating With Vintage Patterns CD. I simply hand cut the image around the black frame and added an die cut to the side as an accent piece. I used S5-071 Twisted Metal Tags and Accents from Spellbinders™. Here is a close up of the designer paper. The Creating With Vintage Patterns CD has over 70 Color Pattern Papers. In the lower right corner I made a flower with leaves to match the designer paper using Frosted Pink Prismatic, Herbal Garden Medium Prismatic, S5-067 Anemone Flower Topper and S4-327 Floral Flourishes. For the flower center I stamped one of the images from Lacey Patterns Stamp Set on to Ivory paper and then placed a 1/2 Clear Epoxy Circles on top of the image and hand cut. I added the flower center, curled the petals and then added Pralines & Cream Fairy Dust Glitter.For a finishing touch I added a few Baby LeCreme Pearls from Want2Scrap™ to the card.
