Looking a bit 'vintage'.....

Evening all! Have any of you been watching 'Falling Skies'? Well, I was going to post this card last night but it was the series finale last night and I got so wrapped up in it, time slipped away from me! It's been a fabulous series - with the ever fit, Noah Wyle (remember him from the good old ER days?!?) There was no mention of another series but they definitely left an open ending!! There's been some amazing programmes on FX this year - obviously Falling Skies, but also True Blood and The Walking Dead (which is back soon - cannot wait!!!!) Anyway, enough of the TV talk and onto the card. I've got something with a bit of a vintage feel to share with you tonight:

Card Blank - Craftwork Cards.
Image - Simply Sassy coloured with Spectrum Noirs and Promarkers (what do you think of my shading again!?!?)
Papers, Stickers and Rub ons - Basic Grey Capella.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.
Lace and Gem from stash.
Also used - Imaginisce D-Stress tool to do all the distressing around the edges (although I think it's quicker to use my sandpaper blocks LOL!) and Distress Inks.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
 OK - I think that's about it. I'm off to get crafting! Hope you like my card, I'd love to hear what you think - especially of another of my attempts at shading. See you tomorrow - I've got a couple of DT
