My first Vintage card

Two posts from me in one day I don't believe it. This is my very first vintage card and I think I will be doing more. I even got my distress pad out and inked the edges which I have an absolute horror of doing as I always muck it up. The image is a freebie from Magic Moonlight a blog my blogging friend Judy told me about. In fact it was Judy who inspired me to have a go as  she has some lovely vintage on her blog inkypinkydelight . I used paper from a Joanna Sheen cd and flowers are Wild Orchid
                                   
                                                            
I would like to enter into these challenges:

Vintage Elusions cards and crafts  anything goes
Make my Monday  vintage childhood
The Ribbon girl  colour inspiration pink & green
My heart pieces  anything goes
Joanna sheen  so sweet
Crafty ribbons  Vintage
ATCs & Cards with Attitude  Anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy  Make it Girly
