Vintage Anniversary - finally!!

I named this card 'finally' as just about everything went wrong in the making of it and although it didn't turn out as planned I am pleased with it.

I used the following colour scheme for inspiration

All the dies I used are Marianne Creatables and are cut from white card brushed with pink chalk. The easel part of the card was made with LR0180. I used LR0111 for the flowers, LR0156 for the leaves, LR0157 for the lavender and glued them on LR0129 doily and the sentiment was made on the computer. I cut 4 Anja LR0200 corners and glued them onto brown card and then fixed the easel card to this. I added a couple of silver gems to the flower centres and wrapped a length of lace around the card and tied it in a bow at the front. I just can't seem to get the bow to stay right so will need to glue it a bit.

Here's a photo of the card closed
