Vintage Dream!!!






Good morning my dears,  I'm here to share my DT card for

SCRAP & CRAFT  INSPIRATIONS



Today I've used the beautiful Dreamy Morning12 x12 
paper pack from Lemoncraft.pl available 
over at  www.scrapandcraft.co.uk   I cut a tag from one of the cut out sheets and added those beautiful Dreamy Morning Flowers to the corner.  The berries and glass dome on the lace are also from Scrap & Craft. 



The only item from my stash is the air dry clay butterflies 
made using one of my silicone moulds and I added a small piece of lace appliqué 

The image is one I've had in my stash for a long time.  I thought the colour combo matched perfectly so I heat embossed one of the beautiful chipboard frames to enhance the image.


I  will add a list of ingredients used with links to the 
store so you can go browse all the delicious products Emilia has to offer.  


You still have lots of time to join in with our current challenge 
which has the theme of Wedding!!

You will find the challenge HERE
