Vintage, Me??

This is my second post for today, please scroll down to see my Delightful Challenges creation hugs xx

This little cutie kept watching us, there were some that had just been born but we
 couldn't see them properly!

Well I tried, hope you like it as much as our Katie did, as she pinched it as soon as I took the photos! Anyhoos, its time for a new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times!
Where this week we want to see your


 creations, so if your anything like me, go get your inks out & make a mess! lol It was real strange not colouring an image for this card, but I did enjoy messing with my inks & Ecraft.

I must admit vintage doesn't scare me as much as it used to!

I am planning on doing a tutorial on how to make these flowers at the end of May over on Digital Delights, I will let you know when!

The idea for this card came into my head when Nige took me to the QVC outlet shop & I got those 
12 x 12 vintage papers!
Well after lots of searching around the internet & getting really frustrated with myself,  I just couldn't find a 'dress form'. I did in the end find a digi image which my fab whizz of a friend Kim changed into an SVG for me....thank hunnie xxx

Aww this is fab Shell !! you've really nailed the vintage/shabby chic theme. Love the dress form and the flower and the gorgeous paper!! Your distressing is perfect!! Love the whole colour theme - I'm not surprised Katie pinched it - it's a stunning card!!
I really need to get more messy with ink but always end up with more ink or paint on myself than on the card!!!! LOL
Aww love your photo of the baby calf!! So cute!!
Hope you're having a fab time on holiday!!
Love Sue xx
