Let's go VINTAGE

Good Morning bloggers, can you believe it's Sunday again already!? Before you know it'll be Christmas ! :-0 Lol! The GOOD news is that we have a brand new challenge for you over at THE CRAFTY PAD, and it's a fab one....we're going VINTAGE. I must be honest and say it's a style I LOVE but it just doesn't come easy to me...I think it's something you've either 'got' or 'not', and I 'not!' However, the rest of the DT have totally ROCKED this challenge, so make sure you go and check out their stunning creations. Here's my card:
I made a tri-shutter card because I couldn't decide which of Debbie's wonderful DRESS FORMS to use, so have used all 3! They are of course available from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS for just 59p.
I printed the vintage green DP straight onto card, and scored/cut it. I also printed 'You've Got Style' onto it too.  Each dress form was mounted onnto a contrasting DP and cut around before using foam pads to mount onto the card. I then added some layered die-cut flowers, die-cut flourishes and some pearls. To finish I added a sentiment and some posh stick-pins. The edges of the card and layers have been distressed and inked, but the photo isn't that good so you can't see that.

Our sponsor this week is the fabuluous CREATIVE CRAFT WORLD with a £10 spend in their online store.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations this week! Thanks for visiting my little piece of blogland.

I think you have definitely 'got' Ali!

This card is fabulous. To my untrained eye it's like vintage with a modern twist, I truly love it :) Good luck with your challenges x
