Just Magnolia Week 65 - Vintage

Hi girls, thank you for popping in to visit my blog. I think I managed to catch up with everybody yesterday after my day missing. I can't wait for the next couple of days to pass to see if this steroid injection is going to make a significant difference. It usually takes a few days to kick in.
Well I have made this card for this weeks Just Magnolia challenge where the theme was "Vintage". However it has just dawned on me that I am too late for the challenge - losing yesterday has messed up my planning. Ah well, not to worry I am posting it anyway. I don't know about you but Vintage suggests to me that the card should be distressed and in browns so this is the result. I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Dalcarlia Horse" and coloured her using my Polychromos Pencils.
I used a Papermania paper which is a classical handmade paper with flock. I also had a chnace to use my new Martha Stewart Double Doily border punch and cut a piece of card to put across the middle of the card. The flowers are from Wild Orchid.
I would be a great treat for me if you had the time to leave a comment to tell me what you think of this card. Your views are always welcomed.
Hugs,

  10. Hi Fiona - all your cards are gorgeous these last few days - but this one is my favourite as i love the Browns and creams which are a personal favourite colour combo.
    The distressing around the edges is great.
    Hop you are ok and your appointment went ok the other day
