Red and Cream Vintage Lady

Not the greatest of pictures for this one I'm afraid - it's a bit too unevenly 3D'd for the scanner!!!

The Vintage Lady image, from the Vintage Postage Ladies stamp by Crafty Individuals, was stamped onto cream card using Versafine Crimson Red archival pigment ink was cut out using the Cuttlebug Square stamp die. This was then matted onto a beige square cut from Core'dinations card and a scalloped red square, both cut using the Nestabilities dies.

A panel of the red card was cut and the bottom edge punched using the Martha Stewart Flower Bed deep edge punch. The edges of the panel were heat embossed using Ink It Up! gold pigment ink and Heat It Up! gold embossing powder.

A panel of the beige and red rose paper from the K&Co Classic K Bailey paper pad was matted onto the red panel and a length of the cream and gold self-adhesive Anita's ribbon was added along the bottom of the patterned paper. The stamped image was added in the top left corner and three cream pearl beads were attached to the top right corner.

The sentiment, from the Papermania Chatsworth Frames and Messages stamp set, was stamped onto the cream card using the Crimson Red ink and matted onto the beige and red cardstock. A pearl bead was stitched in the corner of the sentiment panel and adhered to the card over the ribbon.

Here are  the challenges that I'll be entering this card into:
