Vintage Cafe Card Challenge

Good Morning,
I am so happy to announce I entered Vintage Cafe Card Challenge! This is the first time ever that I am entering any card challenge. The theme of this challenge is lilac or lavender.

So, I decided to make a 3-D lilacs for my card. I used Flower Shoppe Cricut Cartridge to cut half inch flowers which I then shaped and decorated with Ranger White Opal liquid pearls. Then I made two paper cones and glued the flowers onto the cones with hot glue.
I also made roses and other flowers you see in this bouquet, some I distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Paint and for the center of the flower I used flower trims.

The card measures 5" x 7" and has multiple layers of distressed patterned paper and cardstock. Embossed die cuts are from Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles and Fancy Tags Two.

I found this beautiful clock face in Tim Holtz Paper Stash "Lost and Found", to me it sure was lost treasure that I have found. :)

I used Seambinding to created the bow.

I have used MS Word program to create most of the sentiments on the cards I make. I find this method more rewarding since it gives me freedom to create different sentiment each time. Possibilities are endless... as long as you are creative. The font I used for the sentiment on this card is 1942 Report. It is one of my favorites.
I found inspiration for this card in this beautiful wedding bouquet.

Anyways, I had lots of fun creating this card and am very happy with end result.
I hope you all are having a wonderful day.
Thanks for stopping by.
