It's A Vintage Thing - Eclectic Ellapu Challenge # 4

Morning everyone,
I can't believe we are already on challenge number 4 over at Eclectic Ellapu and this week it's the turn of us Purples. Our theme has been chosen by the lovely Sandra and it's "It's a Vintage Thing". I have made this birthday card for my Auntie, when she was a little girl she used to dress the pet cats up in bonnets and matinee jackets and take them out in her dolls pram.

I had to use this digi for her card, I thought of her as soon as I seen it. I've coloured it with my promarkers trying to create a vintage sepia photograph effect. I highlighted the image with my white gel pen.
The fancy corners were created with my fleur de lys nesties.

The flowers are a mixture of brown and cream and the liquid pearls are in platinum. I've added the pearls to the butterflies and the photo corners.

The sentiment is an old Penny Black stamp but has been so useful, purrrrfect for this card I thought.

This is a weekly challenge and the emphasis is on FUN, the winner, runners up and top 5 win a badge chosen by the DT no random org here :) . To enter just hop over to our blog and link up on Miss Linky (yes she is female).
