Vintage Card Cafe "The architecture of XIX century"   Challenge

For the architecture element of the challenge, I used a great embossing folder from Provocraft called Madison.  It reminds of the gates at a beautiful castle in England or France.  


You can see the detail of the embossing folder in this photo.

Details of the flower, leaves, sentiment on a trinket pin.

This lovely image is from Oxford Impressions.
