Southern Girls Challenge #8 DT Card

Evening All. It's Thursday in NZ (where the Southern Girls challenge blog is based), which means it's time for a new challenge. This time around, our team were challenged with a vintage theme and we're lucky enough to be sponsored by the ever lovely Whimsy stamps. Here's my card:

I really hope you like it - I must admit that 'vintage' isn't a style that I usually use, so I wasn't entirely confident that I was doing it right?!?! The image is coloured with promarkers and then die cut with my nesties and cuttlebug. I also distressed the edges of both the image frame and the edges of the entire card. I used paper from a Paper Cellar stack called 'Victorian Classic', which just screams vintage!! Oh, and Bazzill Basics card. I've also used a Craftwork Cards sentiment and the ribbon, which was white, came from my stash and I've coloured it with distress inks. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. And I think that's about it!
I'll be entering my card into The Sweet Stop's sketch challenge #86, as I did follow the sketch over there - look closely and you WILL see it!!
I hope you'll join in with the challenge, you've got 2 weeks from today and there's some fabby prizes for the winner. You must hop over to the challenge blog though anyway, because the rest of the DT projects are TDF!!!! OK - bye for now, back tomorrow with a fun card for Digital Delights.
