Vintage Friday!

Good morning and happy Friday everyone, I have been super busy working on the yearbook for my daughter's school so when I get a few minutes I use them to get my DT projects done.  Today I have a card with a couple of vintage inspired images from Stampin' D'Amour, the dancing couple is from the "French Vintage" set and the sentiment is from the "Fabulous Birthday" set.  My color combination is color challenge #23 from CR84FN and my layout is based one sketch #186 from Mojo Monday
All the black lacy borders were cut with the border die from the Spellbinders' set "Parisian Accents".  I used a Sizzix embossing folder to emboss the upper cream colored patterned paper.
The sentiment was stamped on glitter cardstock with black StazOn ink and cut with a circle die from Spellbinders.  Also added some tiny adhesive pearls.
I stamped the image on Canson paper with Versafine black ink, inked the edges with tattered rose distress ink and applied some Stickles to the dress.  Double matted with black cardstock and cream patterned paper and then added the border.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by and hope you have a great weekend.
