Victorian Friendship

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I have a friendship card to share with you that has a real Victorian feel to it. I made this card for ABC Toys & Crafts- and that's where you'll find some of the awesome products I used to make it. I love the patterned paper I used as it reminds me of Victorian wallpaper. And paired with the beautiful die cut frame, I think it looks kind of like an antique silhouette hanging in a parlor in a beautiful old Victorian mansion ;-)

The paper is from the Crafty Secrets "Classics" collection paper pack. I have used it on so many things and never ever tire of it. It's so beautiful!

And this awesome frame is from the Spellbinders Floral Ovals frames die set. Gorgeous, isn't it? I love all the detail and by adding some tiny pearls it looks so elegant. 

I used Stampin' Up!'s "Victoria" lace on top of some lovely old vintage peach colored lace I had in my stash that I got at an antiques show. And the flower is a big Prima flower that looks/ feels like a real dried flower, which had also been hanging around in my stash waiting to be used ;-)

The two little stick pins are a couple that I made and as simple as they are, I think they add just the right  touch to finish things off. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I'll be back soon with another card to share with you!
