Vintage Love

Good Evening,

Freezing here again and have another card to show you. This is another of the "flat" charity valentine cards that I have had to make. For this card I used a Penny Black stamp that I had actually forgotten I had.

I used some papers that I have had so long I cant remember where they are from. Stamp coloured with shimmer chalks, embossed panel coloured with Tim Holtz distress inks. Flower made with a paper flower coloured with distress ink and sentiment stamped, cut out and triple heat embossed.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

The Sweet Stop - sketch
Sugar Creek Hollow - vintage valentine
Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C72 vintage or shabby chic
Craft your days away - love

Here is a close up of the image.

That's all for now folks, hope to have another creation for you soon!
