House of Cards - Shabby & Vintage


Hanging out again over at the House of Cards.  
This week we are to use the same photo and/or colors to create a 
Shabby & Vintage card.

 I went with the colors.
Here is my card:
 I really like sketch challenges because design/layout has always been the hardest part of making a card for me. Or so I thought.
Then I  discovered the HOC Challenges with a different theme each week.
Are just the image, pearls and lace enough to make this shabby & vintage. 
I have no idea, my brain just doesn't work that way.  
I hope so!

More Wink of Stella on the corset and flowers.
I added the hat pin at the last minute.
The lacey stuff on the pin is really cool.  
It is elastic, kind of like a net.
Not sure where it came from, but sometimes it is just the perfect touch.

Yes, you are right.
Those pearls are covering up a mistake.
I got a smidge of ink at the end of the sentiment.
Luckily, I am loving the pearl clusters lately.

Thanks for dropping by,
