Time for a challenge for the Outlawz.... D

Time for an Outlawz Challenge over at Paper ala Mode and it is anything goes everyone so pop on over and enter whatever you like.

 Well I was ready for a nap but then felt an overwhelming urge to put together a vintage card.  Though it did not turn out to be a card in the end.  I found an image on the internet. I wiped TH ink pad over it, then wet it to look aged.  I then covered the photo in mod podge.  

I bought some really old vintage doilies at a car boot last weekend.  One was a little stained so I dyed it using in tea.  Came out just right.  I edged the topper using the doily lace.  I then layered a gold trim on top and finally pearls from my stash.  Actually they were bits and pieces in my scrap box. 

Once this was finished I didn't want to use it on a card and decided to make it into a little picture which stands upright.  I can't say it is a picture frame because its not lol.  I just glued a piece of strong card to the back to steady it whilst upright.  You never know I may just use this on another project in the future.

Anyway thank you for dropping by and I do hope you call again.
Why not go join in the fun and take a peek at the wonderful DT projects over at the Outlawz.

Hugz always
