Todays card really reminds me of a Laura Ashley dress from the seventies ( No I've not lied about my age I've been watching too many documentaries!)
The background paper is the culprit I think and it is from Do'crafts Victoria and Albert museum collection. This is a collection of papers from quilts and fabrics from the museum so it could be where Laura got the print fabric idea from!
I started this card with the paper and mounted it onto a sheet of gold mirror card then a piece of PMD chocolate brown card. I foam mounted this onto a cream card frame on a card base made from the same, brown, cardstock.
The focal element is made from the largest three die cuts from Spellbinders Decorative Labels twenty-two. These were cut in the same cream card however I inked them in the dies using Antique Linen distress ink as well as dusting the edges with the same ink.
The sentiment is a waltzing Mouse stamp which is stamped in the same colour ink.
Finally I added a double bow and a strip of ribbon on the chocolate die cut which helpfully has sections at each side which the ribbon threads through beautifully!
The bow is made with the technique I use for my messy bow, see the video tutorial HERE, however I only wrapped the ribbon round the pegs twice.
