Paper Sundaes Challenge #71 - Vintage/Shabby Chic

I'm so excited about this weeks Paper Sundaes Challenge #71 - Vintage/Shabby Chic!!  Normally I absolutely dread vintage challenges and steer far, far away from them but not this week!  I was determined to ROCK this challenge & I totally think I did.  I studied the cards made by the awesome DT over at Tickled Pink Stamps (our sponsor this week) because they rock vintage like nobody I've ever seen and got to work.   You can check our their work over at the Tickled Pink Challenge Blog.  It took me forever to make this but I love it:
The fabulous image by Tickled Pink Stamps is called 30's Lylah, isn't she just gorgeous?  I coloured her with copics and added glossy accents to her eyes to make them shine.  All paper used on my card was by Bo Bunny, except for the flourish & leaf dies which were by K&Company which were distressed with Tim Holtz Distress inks.  The flowers are by Petaloo but the cream colour one was also distressed with TH ink.  All the butterflies and the border punch were from Martha Stewart punches.  The clock was cut from the Bo Bunny Paper as well and I used Tim Holtz Crackle medium on it.  I have 3 different ribbons as well and some sewing and folded and distressed paper but there are so many layers I'm not sure if you can see it.  I think I should have entered it in some kind of PILE IT ON Challenge :)
I'm so in love with Vintage now!!  

I will be entering my card into the following challenges:
Tickled Pink Challenge #21 - Use 3 (or More DP) I think I've got that one covered LOL
Craft Your Passion Challenge #59 - Let it All Hang Out (have something hanging over the edge)

Be sure to check out the other Sundae Girls creations over at Paper Sundaes and play along for your chance to win a fabulous prize from Tickled Pink Stamps!

Oh wow so neat to find you are in Abbotsford! I'm in Merritt! This card is beautiful and obviously great minds think alike. I think that Bo Bunny screams vintage. And like you, I'm really into this vintage phase right now too. Good thing cuz it's everywhere. LOL! Is that a Bo Bunny Timepiece clock? if so did you add Stickles to it? It's very pretty and I love your color combo! Hope you're enjoying your Sunday!! Hugs and thanks for having me as a guest!
