Vintage Confirmation

Confirmation - this time of year again. And this year I had a confirmand myself.
May 15th was my daughter, Heddas, confirmation.

I love making card for confirmations, especially girls confirmations.
I've tried to make this in a vintage, shabby-like style. I've used laces, frantage, cheesecloth, seambindingribbon, a flower and a ribbon with printed confirmation text. I mounted the image on to a panel made with a die I think is from Spellbinders.
As base for the card I used Bazzill Kraft cardstock, finished size is 4"X6".


The inside is folded to make pocket for a gift card (or money) inside:

Inspired by a Song or Film @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning, Everyone!

Two Colours Only @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning Friends and Followers
It's a beautiful Wednesday morning
A Wednesday with a new challenge at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

This week’s theme is  Two Colours Only
Our sponsor is  Dr Digi's House Of Stamps

Prize is 2 digi image of winner’s choice.

Two Colours Only - A rather hard one, I thought.
But as I sat down with the image Tin Man, I found the colors almost gave themselves. 
It had to be grey and brown - what else could it be for a proper tin man!
So, I used all Warm Grey colours and a few brown shades, -oh, and of course the Blender.
After posting the pictures to the blog I realized that the flocked border on the grey DP looks a bit greenish, but checking on the card again it was grey. So what happened from the camera via the computer to the blog is kind of a mystery...

Well, here is my Two-Colored card:
Inside the card (don't you think the grey Bazzill has got a little greenish hue here also?!?)
I'll wait to attach the greeting panel on the left inside 'till I've found the greeting I like to stamp on:
