Vienne Valentino

Getting into vintage mode here... I got some great vintage images, and have photo printed them, so they look fabulous.   This gorgeous valentine image is one that I've decided to enter in the Fab'n'Funky Challenge #4 ... "Anything for Any Occasion".  Valentines Day fits in here I guess!  

I've used Bazzill cardstock for the base and layers, and a gorgeous vintage fabric. The lace is a vintage remake, as are the wee blue velvet flowers.  I have overstitched some of the raindrops with a silver thread, which doesn't appear to show particularly well here.
The button is one of many vintages that I have.  I played with my Grandmother's button tin as a child, and have always found running my hands through them ( a la Scrooge McDuck!) to be very therapeutic.  If buttons were world currency, wouldn't it be a nicer place?
