Vintage Flowers

I struggled a bit with today's card as I'm not a lover of the vintage look...




I was asked to make a card for an older lady that with the brief  'old-fashioned with flowers'. Some time ago I was given a pack of patterned papers that can only be described as 'faded floral and dull' which I never thought I would use but were ideal to create a vintage feel.

I used a sticker of some lilies (I think!) mounted on a fancy Marianne oval die-cut and some pearls and a strip of lace as embellishments. The greeting was printed directly onto patterned paper.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Crafty Catz #399 - anything goes/for the ladies
4 Crafty Chicks #385 - no winter blues
Crafter's Castle #1 - anything goes
