DT Post for the Crafty Pad: Vintage

Good morning lovelies - I hope you are all well and ready for a new challenge at the Crafty Pad - this week the theme is Vintage but before I tell you about it - just wanted to say how amazed I was at the entries to last weeks floral challenge - I'm glad I haven't got to choose the winner!

Anyway - this week we are sponsored by: craftysentimentsdesigns


The winner will receive their choice of 3 digi images from the CSD shop.

Here's my card using Dress-Form-Trio.and Vintage-Grunge-Baroque-Collection papers

I really love this image - its absolutely stunning I think - and so very versatile!
I've distressed around the edge of the image with antique linen DI , the scissors are crafty emblies and the papers at the very back are from papermania's linen collection. I've embossed the layer behind the image using a sheena douglass embossing folder.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

pixieduststudiopixiechallenge: Anything goes
