Southern plantation

Do you ever have a picture in your mind of how a card should be? Well, I did. However, the only thing on this card that I started with were the flowers and the Brocade Window die cut folder. lol
The background in the window is from a paper pack from Michaels called Elegance by Recollections. The flowers were in an old corsage. The corners are a Cuttlebug corner die cut. The leaves are from a free svg cut by Bird. I put a piece of clear acetate from a package over the image. The envelope was lined with part of the Michaels paper. Just finishes off a pretty card I think. It was rather cloudy when I tried to take the pic. Perhaps if you wanted to see detail you could click on the picture.
Have a Blessed day.

It turned out to be a beautiful card and I thought the flowers from an old corsage was the icing and memento. Ahh, and the lining in the went all out! Stunning!
