OK, for today's card, something waaaaay different from my 'Lollipop's' and 'Bella' stamps I usually grab for. We're going..........Vintage! I love this style of card but never make one very often, cause I think I'm scared of messing it up. Anyhow, when I saw this beautiful image...........'LOVE' by Stitchy Stamps, (which you can find at the Stitchy Bear Store right here) I knew I needed to roll back the years and go for it. I know it's not perfect, as I kept itching to add a little more, but I am pleased with it, so here goes..............

Did I mention that I 'LOVE' this classic. I also 'LOVE' the papers from Graphic 45.........been hoarding them forever!

I coloured the image of course with my Prisma pencils, and a touch of Copic markers for skin tones and the word "love". I glittered the letters and fur and then fussy cut around the image. The telegram is cut from a sheet of the DP then inked, and the ticket is from a K&Company vintage pack. Ribbon and the pearly swirl are from a $$$$ store and the stick pins are from Jenni Bowlin. I also stitched and distressed the edge of the papers, and the sentiment is cut from a Nestie, printed from Word, and inked. Phew, that's all the 'deets' over with.

This classy Lady will be entered into a number of challenges of course, one being over at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, whose challenge this week is to chose a particular print from Cafe Baudelaire Prints, as inspiration. I chose the following, so I'm hoping you can see a connection.............
