A Vintage plus Black for 365 Cards' Vintage Week

I am making a really quick post. I have been watching the 365 Cards Challange Blog this past week, and each day the challenge was to make a vintage card plus a particular predominant color. Even though I have been really busy, I was SO SURE that I would get at least 3 or 4 of their challenges done. I have been cruising by Gloria Stengel's blog to look at her awesome entries, and she is giving the fab prize for the name drawn from vintage week. I would tell you all about it, but I did NOT have the time to make several cards. I managed to do one card - vintage plus black as the main color. However, entries are supposed to be in tonight, so I need to get this posted! I may already be too late, but I did have fun making it. Here it is:

I started with a black card base, then added some Rhonna Farrer dp from my stash. Then I found some real vintage music from my old piano bench, adhered 2 pieces that I tore out of a music book (plus the title of a musical piece which I used as my title - "Flower Song"), and took a dry brush and swiped gesso over it all to sort of bring it all together. I used a scalloped punch to cut a piece of cream cs, inked the edges, added some little flower stickers and gemstones, then adhered it with 3D dots for dimension. The birdie was cut from a book I have of vintage silhouettes. I added some black and frosted stickles to it, plus a pearl for the eye. To finish, I added some lovely Prima pearl swirls. I love those. I could just put those on everything! lol
So I HOPE that I finishied this in time to add this to 365 Cards Vintage plus Black challenge, as I previously mentioned. We shall see. Be sure and go and have a look there. So much inspiration! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Have a blessed week,
