Vintage Tilda Challenge Card

After experimenting I wanted to play some more with my older stash so this card is full and I mean full of Glimmer Mist. Every element including the image has been spritzed with antique brass, so lots and lots of sparkle on this card. Tilda was paper pieced with paper from Crafty Secrets and the rest coloured with assorted coloured pencils and odourless white spirit. Stitching done with a faux stamp but don't know what company. Butterfly is Marianne Designs Die Cut,loads of glimmer mist and distress stickles. Flower stems on backing paper are Tim Holtz, stamped with cocoa memento ink pad.
The postcard stamp is Prima and again glimmer mist and edged. Distressed paper edges with MM tool which I just love.

Sounds a bit long winded now so I'll stop waffling. Oh, forgot the lace, flowers (wild orchid) and leaves. They were all all attacked by Glimmer Mist to!

Well heres my list of challenges.

Pocket Full of Posies - Winged Things
Wild Orchid Crafts - Make it Sparkle
Stamp with Fun -Card for a Girl
Flutterby Wednesdays - 1 Sparkle (Glimmer Mist) 2 Designer Paper, 3 Button or Gems (on butterfly)
Stamptacular - Two's Better Than One
Totally Tilda - Stitching
CYDA - With Wings
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Paper Cutz - Anything Goes
PaperPlay - Pink to make the Boys Wink
Simon Says Stamp & Show - Anything..Lord Tim of Holtz Inspired(Distressing, Glimmer mists, T.H Stamp)
Charisma Cards - Die Cuts
Polka Doodles - Vintage

I'm liking the idea of mixing cute and vintage.
