A Vintage Love Dream

It looks as if love & spring is in the air all over blogland...
I loved this sketch Itzuvit brought us (along with an Israeli fride :)), and naturally I used alot of pink on this card (well, Itzuvit asked for it LOL). I LOVE this color combo - all shades of pink and brown, with a little green touch.
I liked the contradiction between the vintage look of the background & the embellishments and the childish look of the image.
The big flower on the lower right corner was made of layers of note sheet, cut with zig-zag scissors, and on top I adhered ribbon flower with organza riboon underneath. I added golden stickles on the petals and the flower. the small red & cream flowers are ribbon flowers I have for a long time and I was so pleased to use them now.
The digi image was colored with watercolor pencils and I added an old look frame around it. then I adhered it on a lace doily that was inked with brown ink to give it the old look. the pink hearts are digi stamp (freebie on simple doodles, go there and grab some, and use it for the new challenge starting today - CELEBRATION , I'm one of the GDT over there and I'd LOVE to see you join us in this fun challenge!), and the red hearts were punched.
The golden brown ribbon on the upper left corner is a gift I got from my dear older sister (than you, sister!), and I added lace ribbon,glitter flower sticker, pearls and rhinestones.
The flowers give the card a spring and flourish feeling, along with the vintage look. and when you take spring with love, you sure get a big celebration!
and it goes for all these challenges:
sketch + pink + bling - #22 doodle palace
celebration - #9 simple doodles
musical monday - day 324 on 365 cards (the inspiration was the dream song from Cinderella, and I took the love theme of this movie)
love & kisses - #64 one stop craft
lots of layers - #87 a spoon full of sugar
color me wonderful - #26 incy wincy designs
hearts & flowers - week #36 allsorts
hearts - cbc83
red heart challenge - caardvarks
recipe (brown, pink, lace, flower) - #2 paper sundaes
a touch of green - #23 stampin' sisters in christ (with the flowers and the boy's shirt).
inspiration - valentine princess at sweetie pie tutus - #72 etsyinspired
monochromatic - #21 just buggin
anything that sparkles - #8 your next stamp
sketch - #15 delightful sketches; #42 digital tuesday (with some liberty on the sketch).
flower & ribbon - cute daisy may
dimension - totally gorjuss
create a scene - #45 ooh-la-la; fttc50
warm wishes & more challenges - #3 pile it on (mine is the warm colors)
favorite color combo & digi - #22 bee crafty
Edit: I was so busy uploading this post to all these challenges (I think it goes for 41 challenges...), so I forgot my manners.. LOl
so excuse me for my misconduct and thank you all for taking the time to look at my card. furthermore I appreciate your comments.
The whether got so cold here, in a few hours, so I wish you all a warm evening/night/morning - have a lovely day and keep warm and safe wherever you are.
