Hi everyone....something alittle different for me today,i've gone for the distressed / vintage look...i really think this gorgeous image cry's out for it!,and i must add today i'm happy with what i've made :0)...maybe my mojo's returned,we'll see...LOL!
No patterned papers...everything on the card as been stamped and everything's been distressed both with a distressing tool and Distress Inks....i made alot of mess,but hey i enjoyed it!and at the end of the day that's what it's all about!

List of items used :-

STAMPS :- Whimsy Stamps "Define Life" and "Ticket Sentiments",Stempelglede "Maribel" and Waltzing Mouse "Rescue Remedies".
DISTRESS INKS:- Walnut Stain and Old Paper.

Magnolia Doohickeys "Vintage Tag" die,lace corner is Anna Griffin,flowers,pearls and doily from stash.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges :-



2 SISTERS CHALLENGE (Saturday)....No designer paper.

CRAFTY EMMA'S STORE (Saturday)...."Chocolate and Caramel"

OUR CREATIVE CORNER (Saturday).....Photo inspiration.

Well that's about it for now,take care.

This is stunning San. I love how you've done the vintage look. I am so bad at vintage. I've been doing vintage for Simply Create, not sure I've enjoyed it though!
