Victorian Elegance

Well alrighty then....this card kicked by buttock(said like Forrest Gump). I have never done "vintage" before and for some reason, this one gave me some trouble. I have been working on this card for four days. Well, almost...let me digress. We had a semi-tornado Monday night and we had some major yard clean up. I mean to say, we had big branches that broke off our trees that absolutely littered the yard. Our pool filter was found at the neighbors house, and every decorative piece on our fence posts were blown off and scatter throughout the neighborhood. So....I have been a little busy. No major damage...just lots of clean up.

This was made for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #7. Come on and join us for some fun and great prizes! Pssst....there's even some cash up for grabs. Also, the image is from Digital Two for Tuesdays challenge. There are some great vintage images if you care to try your hand at it.

Flowers are a combination of cuttlebug die cuts and punches
This was my first paper piercing
The scroll florishes are from Spellbinders
Used a cuddlebug embossing folder than sanded the design

Thanks for stopping by today. My battery died on my to for more real soon.
