A Little Romantique

Morning All!
Back with a quick blog post to show you another card I've made. This was commissioned for 60th Birthday. I love the vintage feel of the Graphic 45 papers so decided to use some of the lovely images from the Le Romantique line. I fussy cut elements from the papers to surround the frame and mounted the main piece on antique gold card. The background used a criss cross scoring technique on Coredinations cardstock which I've used before with a little gem added at each intersection. Love the effect this gives but saw a Sizzix embossing folder on one ladies blog yesterday which will achieve a similar look. I then used another of my faves - a Craftwork Cards scalloped card base - they are just great quality!
Anyway, thanks for looking - I hope to enter this card in Moving Along with the Times 'Vintage/Shabby Chic' Challenge.
Bye for now
