House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ,,, V for Vintage

I am scheduling this post as I have loads of visitors at the mo' my apologies for not popping by your blogs but I will catch up with you all soon :-) x x

It is time for a new theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge ,,, this week DT Heather chose the theme and she chose


We are sponsored by our very own Mary whos is generously giving away this very cute Cast of Characters stamp to one lucky entrant :-) You have until the 15th August to enter ,,, so plenty of time to join us :-)

I am not very confidant with 'Vintage' but a challenge is a challenge and this is how we learn eh !! :-) I need more practise :-/

I used my lovely Purrty Nails House Mouse stamp :-) I coloured the image with copics and coloured the edges with distress ink. The papers are Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage and I got out my sewing machine and sewed around all the edges. The pearls are from Prima, Say it in Pearls with Roses
The ribbon was on a bouquet of flowers hubby bought me for my B'day. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and added a few gems to finish :-)
