March Challenge Vintage Theme

Our challenge this month was to create a project with a vintage theme.
I have recently been creating wedding stationery for my niece so had lots of Brown and Cream bits and pieces so I decided to use this as my colour palette for a card, and of course it had to be Wedding based.
The image is taken from one of the Party Paws Serif Digikits which I changed to Sepia.
I added TEXT with the special Bamboo font which is automatically included into your available fonts.
Then I changed the page size to A5  but printed onto A4 which gave me plenty of room to cut around the image with a die. 
The die that I used is a Spellbinders Nestabilities Die called 5x7 Elegant labels 4 
The arch was cut from the middle size but before I removed it from the die I cut around the inside with a craft knife then cut the bottom part away.
The scalloped card was matted with Brown brocade card then the framed image.
The finishing touches were added to create my Vintage Wedding Card.
I look forward to seeing your creations.
Happy Crafting.  xx
