The latest board challenge over on the Cardz n Scrapz forum is with a vintage feel. The recipe is VINTAGE, using a distressing technique (Tim Holtz at the ready) and there must be at least one flower on it!!!  Now I was thinking in the scrappy line then changed my mind at the last second and decided to do a card!!!

I opted to use the gorgeous papers from the Papermania Chatsworth collection.  Having picked my papers I rooted through my promarker collection and opted for a nice simple colour scheme of Blossom and Shale. I distressed the cardstock the paper and the image are mounted on and lightly inked the edges using my Milled Lavendar distress ink. The digi image was the only really vintagey stamp I had but me thinks she is gorgeous!!!  I used the lovely Martha Stewart doily punch to give the card a little frill!!  I added some ribbon and some paper roses in the corner to finish it off.

Thanks for looking!!!
