"Priscillastyles" Steamer Trunk Card

Hi Guys! Well this is my first card I've made as a newby DT on the  Priscillastyles
group over at CDAC. If you like vintagey style digis then go over and check out Priscilla's store here
and then hop over to the CDAC to get some inspiration. :-)
Here is a front view:

There are many ways you could use this digi in making either feminine or masculine cards but I chose to make it feminine by adding adhesive- backed pearls, flowers and buttons.  I'm not sure if you can see it or not but this is a glittered and embossed paper background.You kinda have to see it in person.
I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.

and more close ups:

And the pearly criss cross detail...


I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Kaboodledoodles: 2 patterned dps, 2 plain with ribbon
Ooh-la-la creations: elegant ladies
Wild Orchid: Make it sparkle
Stamp With Fun: Card for a girl

Thanks for stopping by and visiting and for all your support which keeps me crafting!

Waht a gorgeous card Dorcus. Your papers and embellishments all co-ordinate perfectly and I love the way you used the pearls across your ribbon. Great stitching round the edges too.

Dorcas this is an absolutely sensational creation. I love how the inside of the steam trunk is "aged". The paper piercing is very attractive and the way you did the pearls for your interpretation of the sketch is very clever. Great job with the sketch this week. Thank you for playing along in the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Bear Hugs,
