Delicate and Dainty

I love Vintage and as soon as I saw Sandie's work I knew she was an expert at it. 
I love her style, it's delicate and dainty vintage and I am a big fan. 
Just look at this lovely card, it is so old worldly and pretty.
I am always impressed by what she does. Here is what she said about her card.
Love Card
I used the ‘Floruish 1 and Variations’ (IDT0003) to create interest in the flower arrangement of the ‘Love’ card – some of the flourishes were cut into smaller portions to fit the arrangement.  

IDT0003 Flourish 1 and Variations

IDW0036 Love Cherish Adore (Small)

Each portion, including the ‘Love, Adore and Cherish Small’ (IDW0036), and ‘Bird Cage’ (IDT0019) were painted using Creative Inspiration paint.Firstly, I painted with ‘TuTu Pink’, and then a light brush of ‘Gold’ to tone the pink down to fit the card style.Using a dauber to apply the ‘Gold’ gave a variegated appearance upon each of the chipboard pieces, which can be seen in the close up photographs.
