Je suis calme comme on l'est quand on a conscience reproche un rien

There’s a fun new sketch over at Outlawz and I’ve made a vintage inspired card featuring the beautiful Marie Antoinette image from this month’s fabulous sponsor, Aurora Wings.

I just had to go vintage with this gorgeous image, I love Marie Antoinette and Mitzi’s version is just stunning.  I’m entering my card in the current vintage challenge over at Just Inspirational.  Of course being vintage and featuring Marie Antoinette I just had to put some flowers on this.  Lots of them, including some paper ones and some metal ones so I’m also entering it in the current challenge at Craft Horders Anonymous. 

The metal ones have been in my stash for quite some time and were perfect for this especially when I added the pretty pink brads to the centre.  With my brads I am also entering this at Use Your Stuff.  I certainly don’t use my brads enough, these ones came off an unopened packet that has been in my drawer for so long I had forgotten I even had them!  As I also have three metal flowers, three paper flowers and three brands I’m also linking this up at The Crazy Challenge.

Now you can’t have a vintage and shabby card without a lot of layers and I do love layers.  For this one I have three layers of paper, all a bit grungey and shabby.  With those three layers I am entering this over at Stamps & Fun =Creativity.  As I also have an image coloured with markers, my trusty Copics of course, I’m also entering the current MarkerPop! challenge.

I love how this card turned out.  Hope I’ve inspired you to come play along with this week’s sketch, which will be my last for a little while as I take a lovely and long holiday overseas.
