Nostalgia

This is my card that I have entered in the cuttlebug contest this week. The theme is nostalgia and we are to use something cuttlebugged on it as well. I used Martha Stewart's lace corner and border punches to make the pink lace border.  The brown background was made by running the card stock through the paisley folder and then brushing a dark brown ink pad across it to bring out the paisley design. The writing and girl came from a page of Collage Clips that I got from the Somerset Studio magazine. The cream frame is a die cut from Quick Kutz, and the butterflies were cut off corners after I punched them using Martha Stewart's corner butterfly punch. I loved working with this theme.
