Challenged! - Vintage Boudoir and Chandelier

This is a combination of two challenges I really wanted to enter - Vintage Boudoir at the Shabby Tearoom and Candelabras, Chandeliers and Candles,  at Gingersnap Creations.

Despite making it specifically for these challenges, I'm not sure I did that great a job in fitting the brief for The Shabby Tearoom. I think (hope) I captured the essence of the photo inspiration  but you were supposed to include a sewing embellishment. I have several stamps and die cuts of sewing machines, scissors, tape measures etc, but none looked right. However, lace is listed as a sewing embellishment, and I have included that, so hopefully I won't be disqualified!

The flapper was taken from a big BLine stamp. ( I used the full stamp here.) The chandelier was a Craft Stamper Magazine freebie. I love it, but it's very small, so difficult to use on its own, except for small gift tag etc.

I really should have tidied my desk before taking this photo! Despite cropping the shot, you can still spot an old margarine tub lid at the side. Let me reassure you that I haven't been making sandwiches while crafting; I've just using it as a palette!

This is so beautiful - it really evokes a feeling, transports you to that period in time. Love it! Thanks for playing along in the Gingersnap Creations Challenge!
