Bathing Beauties

Hello.  Welcome.  Sometimes, despite previous experience to the contrary, I decide to have a go at a style I am not really comfortable with.  For me Vintage is one of those styles.   I see such lovely vintage projects but just can't get it.  Tonight I decided to try again.

I used Cheery Lynn Celtic Fire Oval Frame doily die and a picture of a couple of bathing beauties.  I used DI Vintage Photo on the diecut, backed it with a piece of kraft and added some lace around the edge.  I used Cheery Lynn Dandelions and Tea Rose Small to make the flowers and added a lace hanger and a metal charm from Korthobby.  I added some clear rhinestones to the charm.  It reminds me of vintage jewellery.
