CES Challenge 68...Vintage Dahling!

Good morning peeps, I hope everyone is OK and that any poorlies out there are on the mend soon. I'm hoping for a nice relaxing weekend with lots of crafting...that's the plan anyway!

It's Saturday which means we have lovely new challege for you over at CES Challenges...thank you to everyone who joined in last weeks many entries and great to visit you all and see your beautiful creations! My lovely teamie Sheena has chosen this weeks challenge...VINTAGE DAHLING...which basically means we want to see your vintage makes and I'm sure there's going to be a lot of lace involved and buttons!

I must admit this challenge theme caused much head scratching for some of the DT members as some of us don't have a scoobie about vintage creations (me included), however I have to say thank you to Sheena for taking me out of my comfort zone and for giving me the chance to try something different...I actually really enjoyed making this card even if I did go a bit OTT with the embellies lol!

We are really looking forward to seeing your entries and the DT girls have provided some fab inspiration if you need any
