Moving Along with a Vintage Theme

Good Morning blogging community!! For no reason what so ever I'm in an exceptionally good mood!!! Hope it lasts LOL Thursday already can only mean one thing.....time for a new challenge at
And today we have a brand spanking new member joining our Design Team the lovely 
Please give her a visit and show her some love.

Today's challenge is set by Val and she has chosen
I've never made a vintage card before, I guess that's why these are called 'challenges'
I dug out some old paper, think its K & Co (only another 499 sheets to use up!) I remembered this stamp I bought years and years ago and thought it fitted the theme perfectly, I coloured it loosely with some pastel distress inks, added the lace (essential in vintage) and the tea dyed ribbon bow et voila!! A few flowers and a rub on gold sentiment - one vintage style card.

We have a fab sponsor this week

The prize up for grabs is a £10 Voucher (P&P not included) and with some fabulous stock in store you'll be spoilt for choice with what to spend it on!!
Head over to the main challenge blog to see what the fabby Design Team have made for your inspiration and don't forget to check if you were amonst the top 3 or a winner last week.

Thanks for stopping by today
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
