For the Girls

This months challenge at Stamping Sensations is 'ONE FOR THE GIRLS' and we have PDA as our sponsors who once gain have offered a great prize - £40 to spend at their online store!
Get out a stamp and come and join us!
I have done a shabby vintagey girly card as my DT offering this month -
I decided it was time to get out the sewing machine again and stitched the layers of papers from the Sweet Paris paper pad.
The stamp used for the focal point of the card was (I think) a free one with a magazine. Coloured it with Distress Inks.
The wooden frame was also coloured with DI (Victorian Velvet).
I stamped the Tower and fussy cut. The doily, lace and pins were all from my stash and I finished it off by adding a metal frame and a couple of pearls.
Inside decorated to match.

Other Challenges -
AYLI - Bingo board (Fussy/Lace/Pearls - cos I like vintage and shabby!)
MTTC - Girly
CCCE - Paris
ABC - E is for Everything
