This weeks challenge at Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges is Vintage, easy right? Well apparently not!! I started off yesterday making a card which I have finished but am too ashamed to show you!!!! Even my husband, who is normally my biggest number 1 fan, mentioned that it was not bad but not brilliant either!
So today after being shopping with the kids and pottering around the house for a while I thought bugger this I am not going to let this challenge get the better of me! I sat down and this card ended up coming together quite quickly.
I used Emma's fab tut from the Tickled Pink Blog on how to make fabric roses and made one out of lace ribbon. I am quite chuffed with it and thinks that it suits the theme of the card well. I think the rest of the card is fairly self explanatory.
When I first saw Luca I immediately thought Edward from Twilight but now I am reading The Vampire Academy I thing Dimitri!!!! ummm If only I could have him guarding me 24/7.....Maybe I should stop obsessing over vampires!
I am also going to enter this into:
