Fleur De Lis Vintage Card

Today I felt like going back to Vintage.
I used strong, contrasting colors to create a romantic yet dramatic card.
This card is all in a French style: the Fleur De Lis, the book page and the romantic lace.

Ingredients:
White CS for the card's basis
Light blue CS
Fleur De Lis purple patterned paper (from my stash)
A page from an authentic vintage French book
Black canvas textured CS
Michael Strong's Fleur De Lis Die Cutters
Black lace
Ranger's Distress ink - Dusty Concord
Purple pigment ink
Purple and clear blings

I cuttlebugged the page from an authentic vintage French book, using Labels One Spellbinders Nestabilities.
I distressed the edges of all the papers.
I attached the black lace to the back side of the patterned paper.
I used Michael Strong's Fleur De Lis Die Cutters to cut out shapes of black canvas textured CS in 2 sizes.
I glued them 3D for extra dimension.
I added several purple and clear blings to add some glam.
