Vintage Card Challenge

I am hosting the first Vintage Card challenge on Vintage Affair. I have set the challenge as simply show us your Vintage!!! Basically make a Vintage type card.

Here is my sample ...

I have downloaded the cute image from Vintage Resources a fantastic site if you are looking for vintage images, 100's of links!

I was tempted to colour in the image, but decided in the end to leave as b&w.

I have made the back ground paper myself by:
Using cut and dry foam I inked distress ink all over a normal piece of copier paper, I then stamped some script randomly all over the piece of paper.

I have also inked the lace with distress ink.

What I used:

Copier paper
Image downloaded from Vintage Resources
Crafty Individuals number 017 stamp
Tim Holtz - Distress Inks - Tea Dye, Old Paper and Aged Mahogany
Prima Flowers
Mark Richards Rose Pale Pearls
Bazzill Green Cardstock
Basic Grey - Mellow Range
