I was looking through some of my papers yesterday and came across the pretty 'Pion Designs' "Paris Flea Market " collection, they are extremely hard to come across so I have been hoarding them, but it's such a shame to have them sat in a box, so I decided to make a little Vintage style Birthday card, I just layered some of the papers, roughed the edges up with scissor blades, added some Tea Dye Distress ink, I thought I would cut the top layers into a swallow tail shape for a change, I added some flowers and leaves while trying to still show the pretty paper underneath, I fussy cut a butterfly from one of the papers, shaped it, added some 'Wink of Stella' to its sinks and pearl swirls for the butterfly trails.
I then added the sentiment, die cut from one of the papers and layered with plain cream to add some dimension, I also gave it a swish over with the Wink of Stella !
Well today is the official day for having the decorations down and packed away, I have to say I can't wait, I love that clean, uncluttered look just after all the tinsel and baubles have been stowed back in the loft! So that's our plans for today, what are you all up to??
