Rememember the Old Year and Happy for New Year

Hi, I'm back again today with another card. I stored lots of new crafty goodies in my stash:)
      Lot's of textures with a vintage vibe going on...
      It’s a new year, I’d like to kick things off celebrating both old and new.
         
              I wanted to use butterflies and light spring colors.  This is what I came up with.
I'm a big fan of vintage and shabby papercraft (although I do have a streak of CAS in me as well!) I love textures, muted colors, and an old fashioned feel. I'm happiest creating pieces that are based on just that...such as today's design. Loved to incorporate so many beautiful Stamps on one page with lots of layering. I used Tim Holtz Wallflower paper collection( Thanks to KEVIN for this awesome PP stack won in candy) for the base and inside of the card. And a musical notes and some scripted paper is also used for the LO. Then I started layering some snippets scraps I had lying around on my desk - a doily die cut , chipboard, butterfly out of burlap piece, a musical note.
 I then used the Spellbinder cuckoo clock die and cut the shape from a chipboard for the thickness and another die piece added on it from a snippet of khaki brown paper and created a border around the clock.
 
Side view:
           I started out with the idea of wanting to rip paper and roll it back.  I cut the slit of the tag for this which already in this beautiful paper.
             I added  grunge effect at the top with adding embossing paste using the stamp. There is a lace border stamped at the right side in cool grey color using gelato on my lace stamp.
                   A close-up of the flower cluster on the layout filled with beautiful Prima rose flowers
I gathered some bits together and placed them on my paper getting the design and layout sorted and then I set about staining the large lily flowers and inking everything, adding golden glitter on it. Those Lily flowers started off as white would you believe? I made spring flowers with Spellbinders Die D-Lites Create-a-Lily dies.

            A blender tool and vintage photo ink ages the edges of almost every element on this card. Adding just a few metal pieces with some transparent yellow crystal flowers, cream color satin ribbon bows, pollens, blings and some lace finishes off the front of the card with room inside to write a personal message to the recipient in the tag.
     Here is the new year massage with inside view:

  I love the vintage feel to it and the simplicity of putting it together. This my first vintage and shabby creation, Hope you like it:)

  22. This was an absolutely clever interpretation of our theme! I love the idea of waving goodbye to an old year and being excited for the beginning of a new year. All the elements you included were so creative and really stuck with your idea. It was very thoughtfully done and I enjoyed seeing all of the unexpected elements paired together. I liked the sentiments you included, too, and the texture and dimension was incredible! Thank you for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
