Vintage-y Love :)

Another Valentine card for today, a shadow box card with a vintage color scheme. This card technique and vintage style is my first time try. Hope you like it.

White, cream, black, brown, light mint green,kraft are the shades i have played with.
Made a shadow box with cream CS and mint green pp whose edges are distressed with momento rich cocoa are added on the outer frame. A square frame is cut from pattern paper which has music notes, is added as inner panel and to it added a heart diecut from same pp, is with stamped florishes and its edges too sponged with rich cocoa.

All the flowers are handmade. Florishes, roses, mum, are diecut from various dies  and distressed and dry embossed to make these. To add bit interest to the CLD tropical flourish, added a single petal flower with stryofoam ball centres. Big roses are made from Gardenia strips and small roses bunch are made from Memory box fancy blossoms and of course, single petal flowers too. Big bloom is from CLD sunflower die. Leaves are from olive branches.

Sentiment too is stamped on music note pp diecut, which i hope goes well with the sentiment saying :)
A small CLD butterfly and few pearls, rhinestones are added as final touch.

Hope you all like it...Your comments and visits are much appreciated.
