"A little bit Vintage" ??

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland. 
I know I say this almost every day but I really do appreciate you calling by and leaving such wonderful comments on my work.  It makes it so much more fun to create.
I am going to try and "Schedule" this post, BUT!!! you know me and computers!!!!
This afternoon we are off along to John and Audrey`s for a Birthday Tea,  Robert is 6 today.  We are going along to their Village Hall for 7pm.   The school children are doing this years Christmas Play,  Jack in the Bean Stock.  I asked Thomas if he was to be the Giant, he is so tall I thought that would have been a perfect part for him............No! Granny! I am narrating. 
This surprised me, he really does not like being "Up front" in things.  He likes to take part but melt into the background.   The whole school are involved all 20 of them, great fun is had at these events.  After the performance we have tea/coffee with goodies the children have baked.  They also sell things they have made in the art classes, this raises funds for the school.

My card today I feel is a little bit Vintage.  I really have not done many Vintage cards or projects so maybe it is not.   Let me know what you think.
I did start it out to be a "Tag" but had a good bit of it done when I discovered I had not cut the top corners into a Tag shape.......................typical!!!!

Base card approx 4 x 6 Centura Pearl
Pink card embossed
Kraft card embossed
Green card to pick out the green in the backing paper.
Patterned Paper is a NitWit Download
Spellbinder corner Dies I cut these three times for each corner.   I cut the corners from Kraft card, stacked them to give me depth.  I also lightly dusted them with a little Gold paint.
Piece of lace from my Lace Box
American Seam binding threaded through the lace and for the triple bow
Spellbinder Dies Blossom Five for the Rose, Foliage for the Leaves
Some pearl stick pins

I looked at Sasha`s beautiful card on her Blog.   I think I should have "Triple Embossed" my Corners, might just do that next time.

That`s it for today, thank you for taking time to call in
Hope you get just a little bit of inspiration from your visit

    Hope you enjoyed the birthday tea and that the Christmas play went well.

    My youngest used to hate the school productions and would get himself so worked up about them that he would sleepwalk and talk in his sleep about them.

    Now he plays in a band and loves being on stage!!! LOL!!!
