 I have a vintage/shabby card to share with you today using lots of gorgeous Prima goodies and one of my favourite Tim Holtz stamps!!!  My lovely friend Louise sent me the most gorgeous Prima notelets last year and I thought it was about time I was brave and used one (lol they're too gorgeous to use if you know what I mean!).  I have cut around the shape of the notelet to get the shape of my card.  I've inked the edges of the notelet with walnut stain distress ink and distressed it here and there for a shabby look.
 I've used Tim Holtz sewing room die to cut out the dress form and buttons.  I've cut the dress form again out of Claudine Helmuth Sticky Back Canvas for added texture and painted the stand of the dress form with pickett fence crackle paint.  The skirt is made from paper from Prima's Botanical paper pad, sprayed with pearl glimmer mist.  All the stunning flowers are from Prima.
 I stamped the sentiment with frayed burlap, walnut stain and victorian velvet distress inks and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  The button in the foreground was covered in canvas too and stamped with a scroll stamp and script stamp before inking with victorian velvet distress ink.  I've tied some tulle through the button holes.
 The other button is covered in the same paper as the skirt.
 I've added pearl sprays around the pink flower and some butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
 Some tiny butterflies flutter around the top of the sentiment too.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
