Vintage Vogue again!

These are colours that I rarely seem to use and this card was a good way to use a wee bit of my paper stash!! The sketch I used is one of Karen Giron's [SSSC73] - she always has wonderful sketches for her challenges!

The flowers have been inked first with Summer Sun and then rolled on the More Mustard inkpad before stamping and put together with SU clear Rhinestone brads. The Grey spotted paper and the green striped paper came from the SU Patterns ll paper pad and the Summer Sun paper comes from the Pink Flamingo DSP in the current SU catalogue. Of course the Big Shot was used again for the embossing and to cut the scalloped circle.
