Vintage Girl

This is made especially for
The Shabby Tea Room challenge 5 It's hip to be square
Meljens Designs challenge 3 - Add those 3D elements
Papertake Weekly - Cutie Pie
Die Cut Dreams challenge 43 - Vintage with no colouring
and Penny's Paper Crafty challenge is - Anything goes

and will be for a crafty buddy's birthday




I am very proud of the flower. I made it from the wrapping off an Aldi's truffle chocolate.
I found a source for the gorgeous vintage seam binding on eBay - a local supplier of wedding bits n bobs.
