The Huntress Vintage Card

This week over at The Paper Shelter, the challenge was to use lace on your entry. Well, I'm glad I took a picture of the base of this card before I added all my "goodies," because most of the lace ended up covered by the embellishments I used! It's funny how I can get started adding a little bit here and there and wind up covering the whole card! 
The image I used from TPS is called "The Huntress," and she comes in pre-colored and outline-only forms along with some lovely digi paper to match. Here I've used the pre-colored image and made a print and cut file of her using my Silhouette Design Studio software. 
This card has a 5x7 inch Kraft card base I trimmed down slightly. 
Then I adhered a piece of cream and pink damask cardstock and used spray adhesive to adhere my lace panel onto the cardstock. I followed that layer with 2 triangular die cuts from an old Spellbinders set called "Botanical Swirls and Accents." I added some foliage die cuts in yellow cardstock and blue vellum as well as a blue vellum doily. The open leaves are called "Lorelai Outline Leaves" by PoppyStamps. The doily die is "Amour Doily" by Die-Versions, and the other 2 foliage dies are "Casual Trees" Fri-dies by CAS-usual Friday Stamps. 
Then I went a little crazy! I added lots of pretty flowers and some adhesive chipboard pieces from the Prima set "Tales of You & Me." They have such a lovely vintage look! 
Here you can see a bit of the lace peeking through! 
There's also a die cut vellum flower and vine from Gina Marie Designs I added to the chipboard post card if you look carefully. 
I used a little cream silk ribbon for the lower left-hand corner of the card and moved the butterfly from the post card to the ribbon instead. (In case you noticed the butterfly in some of the other pictures!) I love the cute little letter in this set of chipboard die cuts, too! 
This card was a fun one to make. You may have noticed I like to play with dies. I might have a slight addiction to craft dies, but I'm guessing most of you reading this post have the same problem!
