Good morning all and a very cold and frosty one it is too, but beautiful - the sun is shining and making the frost sparkle. I'm happy that I have the morning off and can enjoy the view from our window while I catch up with a few chores before heading off to work.
Today I have my dt offering for the Charisma Cardz challenge to share, our theme this week is Vintage and we have two great sponsors: Simon Says Stamp and Pink Cat Studio. I have used one of Leanne Ellis’s images from Sugar Nellie, which I coloured using a mix of distress ink and Promarkers, I was trying to acheive a kind of sepia look to tie in with the vintage theme. The ribbon and the backing paper have been in my stash forever so I've no idea who the manufacturers are. The little tea roses I picked up in Hobbycraft - they have such a great range of colours I always struggle to choose between them but these ones turned out to be perfect for this card! I used some gold Glimmer Mist on the doily to age it a bit and used my nesties to cut the scalloped circle and the image out of cardstock.
