Birthday card for Deb

I made this card for Deb, one of my Chrysalis forum friends. It was her birthday in December. The front panel is actually cut away & the stripes are the inside of the card. The photo was done in a hurry & so it doesn't show clearly.
The papers are My Mind's Eye, Wild Asparagus. Image (& stamps)from Crafty Individuals (image from the People & Places book 1.) Flower from Studio Calico kit. Metal leaves given to me by my scrapbook friend, Rachel, unknown source. Small brown brad, Papermania. Lace from a market stall, inked with Antique Linen distress ink.
I thought at first it looked too old fashioned, but I loved the Victorian feel to it & the colours of the papers. I inked with Antique Linen distress to age the edges.

Gorgeous card Paula!
Sorry I've been quiet for a while, but I have a very very bad cold for over 2 weeks now, hardly spent any time at the computer..... Am on antibiotics now for 5 days and I finally start to feel a little better!
