Paper Sundaes DT card

Welcome back Sundae bloggers and my next post today... The challenge this week over at Paper Sundaes is "vintage/shabby chic"....this was certainly a challenge for me as I felt a bit out of my depth!!

This week our sponsor is Tickled Pink

who are offering one lucky winner....

For my card I found some papers in my stash which i thought fitted this challenge well...not sure which make they are, but I duffed them up a bit with some distress inks and I also distressed the edges of each of the layers. The image is Lil Fashionette 20's Evie from Tickled Pink and I coloured her with promarkers. I finished with some lace and a few flowers.
