    And our wonderful Prize is

    Magnolia stamp - Tilda catching stars
    And a bottle of  Frosted lace Stickles!

     Excited much ??? I am already drooling over the prize !

    Here is what i made for the challenge . 

    Its been a while that i have been trying to fix up something vintagey ,
    And when this theme came to my mind i decided to go for the Blue and brown combination ! 
    I really find it amazing :) 

     Here is a closer look at the flower arrangement. 
    Even with as little as 4 flowers you can do wonders ! you are free to use all shapes and sizes of flowers . Here my whole card is build around the flowers . 

     Look at that embossing ! Its just fab isnt it ? I think every one should get their hands on the 
    Its the one thing that can spice up any creation ! 
    And no i don't have the feather die , its all hand cut (Although that die is on my wish list.)
    Take a peak at the torn card stock ! i made it a whole new layer in blue.
     As u can guess i have refrained from using any pattern papers in this card 
    (Believe me its very hard to do !!)

    I decided to make my own BG with this one. 
    I first distressed my card with the shades of brown (toffee crunch and potters clay -Memento)
    Then stamped it with my La blanche stamp set
    I really love the music notes and the lady's portrait :) 
    Then i went ahead and did the same with the torn piece . 
    i think it looks kinda cool ! (Pun indented )

    There is also use of texture paste ! i distressed it lightly .
    Also the butterfly is a Pink paislee stamp which i colored with colour pencils.

     I love tucking in tiny pieces under my floral spray . Its a lovely trick to layer your embellishments ! 
    Hope u like my card and it helps you understand what we are looking for in this challenge. 
    Keep your good work coming !
