As promised earlier I'm back with my effort at a vintage card. Not too good I'm afraid, I just can't seem to get this look right. But hey it's good fun trying.

I used an digital image by Paper Garden Projects coloured with Promarkers, K & Co papers, Woodware and X-Cut punches, Nesties, My Minds Eye wild asparagus stamp, Studio G sentiment, X- cut distressing tool and Whispas ink pad.

I am entering this card into the following challenges -

Sketch & Stash - Sketch (my neglected K & Co papers and new digital stamp)
Lots to Do - Vintage
Creative Card Crewe - Vintage
Stamp Something - doodle something
Passion for Promarkers - two images
