Stamp with Stampavie - Vintage

Well it seems at the moment as if aliens have abducted half of the blogging community! It is so quiet round here, well... I know it's less than 2 weeks to Christmas but come on... this is crafting we are talking about... important stuff lol!!
Ha ha!! Only joking, but it does seem as if I'm blogging more than usual at the moment, I've got the bug and I'm rolling with it in case the dreaded mojo and confidence ups and leaves!!

So here is the card I have made for the Stamp With Stampavie challenge which is vintage this week. I was having a tidy of my crafting cabinet and found my 'Vintage' folder and had a rummage through. It's amazing what you can find that you've forgotten about and I felt like a kiddie in a sweet shop!
The written paper was from a grab bag of Vintage bits and bobs which I got from the Gmex show a few years back, haven't a clue what it says but it looks pretty! The other paper was a freebie from Crafts Beautiful as was the sentiment.
The image is Lily and Milo by Rachelle Anne Miller coloured with Pro Markers and finally I added some Prima blooms and Woodware buttons.
Well, I'll be back on Monday after I've finished my dreaded weekend shift at work, so see you then!
Love Becky xx
