Book lover

After making a truck car yesterday, I am in a vintage mood today. There was some challenges I would like to participate, but still not enough time... This is my first Case It challenge and here's the card that was my inspiration (Creative Inspirations) and a sketch (Tuesday Morning Sketches) for this card:
And here's my card:
 The flowers were made using a scarf I bought in second-hand shop & it costed me 1,00 PLN (about 0,24 EURO or 0,19 GBP or 0,30 $). And they are very pretty - I have to admit - especially with those beads.
And here are they on the card:
 The vitage image of a reading woman is from HERE. I also stamped the background with one of my wonderful rubber stamps, it's called 'old print'.
I have to admit I really like this card, I could be the woman in the picture. LOL

Recycling at its very finest - love the idea, and I must keep an eye out while I'm shopping for something similar! Much cheaper to find that at a second-hand shop than to buy a similar fabric, I'm sure! Wonderful idea - and I love the blooms you made with it :)
Thanks so much for playing along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
