Vintage dream.........

Hiya everyone, 

I hope you're all well.  Unfortunately, me and my family have been suffering from the sickness bug which pretty much wiped us out so it's not been fun.  We've not left the house and haven't seen anyone since friday for fear of passing it on especially to my nan who is almost 89.  The card I am have to share today is my DT card for my "A little bit crafty" challenge which is "Celebrate" this month.  I made it for a friend who has just got a new job and she loves all things vintage!  I'm reasonably pleased with it considering I had to throw it together so quickly!
This card for me was a very last minute effort as I planned out what I was doing last week but with all the sickness didn't get chance to start it over the weekend as planned so I made it now at gone midnight the night before.  It would have been earlier if Nathan hadn't woke up screaming and needing lots of cuddles before he'd go back down!

The gorgeous vintage image I have used is a digi from my friend and fellow DT member Lexi's 
new "Scribble and scrap" store
 The Scribble & Scrap Shop
She has only started it up recently but has been adding new stuff recently and has great plans to add more in the near future so check it out!
The papers are from the Prima "Engraver" collection which I have used with a few bits and bobs from my stash.  The beautiful flowers are from a selection by Petal Lu who is one of our sponsors for this challenge. 
I am actually giving away some of these fab little scrabble letter away as blog candy at the moment - you can find the blog post to enter here.
