Vintage Made With Love.....

Good morning everyone!

Here is a card topper I made last night using an older image. I'm happy with the way it turned out for three reasons...... I love the vintage look..... I adore my new Creatables leaves...... and I think this Basic Grey Curio paper is totally divine!!!

I had fun ripping and distressing the paper edges and I really think I suit this style best ;o) The flowers were cut from an EK Success punch and I squeezed the petals for more definition. I also scrunched up my image a little so the creases are meant to be there, lol!

I'd like to enter these challenges:

Waltzingmouse Sketch - Sketch (flipped one quarter anti-clockwise)

Totally Papercrafts - Friendship

Sweet Stampin' - Spring Flowers

Crafty Creations - Three Little Words

Well that's me...... I have a day off today so I'm getting the food shopping out of the way earlier, then I'll have some inky time hopefully, YAY!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
