Vintage, Distress, Whatever - round 2

I really enjoyed the themes expressed in the title, so have decided to make a second entry for some of the challenges.

Crafty Cardmakers - Distressed
Theme Thursday - Vintage
Crafty Ann's Challenge - No. 14, Anything Goes
Stamp Simply - Mothers Day

The image is a Stempelglede image,  Maribel, from UnikScrap.  However,  I have just discovered that Quixotic Paperie are going to be stocking Stempelglede .  Hooray!! - - just means I might end up spending more money because they are in the UK!!

I have stamped with Rangers Black Archival ink on to Clarity Silk card to get a photolike image.  I  then tinted the image with distress inks.  The frame was cut with a nestie.  The background papers are from the Decadent Brocade CD by Artylicious, which can be purchased from Graphicus.  Such beautiful papers on the Artylicious CDs I do wonder sometimes why I purchase other DP, but I just love paper.

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the lace and pearls from stash.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.
