Going Vintage for MAWTT

Good morning everybody

This week I am having the pleasure of  hosting the  Moving Along with the Times  challenge, and my choice of for the theme is Vintage.  Pleae pop along to the challenge blog - there are some fab cards for inspiration.

The centrepiece of my card is an old photograph, but I have had it for so long I am not sure where it came from.  The papers are Pion Design  - such pretty subtle colours.  I have used a variety of dies - Cheery Lynne, Magnolia and also a punch.  The flowers are WOC, and the lace and pearls from stash.  All the papers have been roughed up around the edges with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and then inked with a distress ink and stickles.  The sentiment is Hero Arts.

This week we are sponsored by Crafty Emma's Store and the winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend on some crafty scrumptiousness.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
