Old Style Butterfly

I have had some more fun with the wonderful "Fly Free" set from The Craft's Meow. I am even entering this card into a challenge on The Pink Elephant. They want a vintage style card....and given that I am kinda into this style at the moment, I thought I'd give it a whirl. Now I made 2 similar cards, but it is this one I am entering into the challenge......

I combined a whole lot of different elements for this card. The DP has an old world paisley print on it, which lent itself nicely to the vintage theme. I am also a HUGE fan of the cage image. Reminds me of the old cast iron cages that once were.

The edge was embossed with the Tulips embossing folder from SU and the image was raised slightly.

Of course....doing one, I HAD to do another.....

These are the 2nd type of vintage cards I have done with this set. If you missed the first ones, you can find them here.

Thanks for dropping by. More creative frivolity to be had soon.
