A Not too Over the Top Shabby/Vintage Card.

Hello Everyone
I made a little card out of this delightful digital image from Nicecrane, link here.
Its from the set 'A Treasury of Stories'.
 Ignacio has some unique digital collage sheets.
 I chose this image, simple because I like it.







The Bg  is Prima and the die-cut is SB- floral Oval.
Embellishments -seam binding dyed pink, and finished off with a pretty button.

Today in New-Zealand and Australia  we commemorate ANZAC day.
 (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps)
 On 25 April 1915, eight months into the First World War, Allied soldiers landed on the shores of  Gallipoli,  this campaign  more than any other showcased attitudes and attributes - bravery, tenacity, practicality, ingenuity, loyalty to King and comrades - that helped New Zealand define itself as a nation, even as it fought unquestioningly on the other side of the world in the name of the British Empire.
We seem to have a proclivity for fighting in everyone wars!

ODE
They shall grow not old,
As we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning
We will remember them.

Have a great week
Smiles:)
Sue

Oh, I think the US fights in more wars than anyone! Personally, I think we need to stay home. ;-)

As for your card: it's a darling shabby chic creation. That SB diecut makes such a beautiful frame.

Awesome card Sue. It really is nicely shabby chic and as you say... not over the top. Must do some more shabby chics as I have a pile of lovely flowers to use.

Have I told you lately how over the moon I am that you are on the Nicecrane DT? Well I am. These images just scream Onion and you've done so much to bring this adorable little boy and girl to life.
Happy ANZAC day, the poem touches the heart as does your card. Beautiful dyed seam binding. The pink is so soft and that button is GORGEOUS! As always your trademark stitching seals the deal. :)
I got a great laugh at your comment this morning...a cult following..ha!
Off for my morning walk and then I think I shall attempt some biscuits for the special day. :)
Hugs to you O,
