Gone vintage with no stamps!

The new challenge over at Sophisticats this week is a sketch and also you are not allowed to use any stamps aaarrrggghh!
I did manage though and I quite like the outcome too. I used a vintage image and printed it onto hammered card instead of using a stamp or digi stamp.
I wanted to post it tonight but I can't take pics with my camera at night, well to be honest I can't take pics with my camera most of the time because it only works when it wants too!, so I scanned it instead and the scanner has squished my flowers and has made it look a bit blurry :( I am going to try take another pic in the morning before I take the kids to school though.
Anyway here's my card following the sketch.
The papers are K&Co and ........omg I just realised that I used a stamp for the ticket rofl, how stupid am I? I was proud of myself not using any stamps for the main image and forgot abou tthe ticket. Technicaly I didn't use a stamp though because it was left over from some I stamped teh other day for the wallet I made lol. Somehow I don't think the girls at Sophisticats will let me away with that one!! I'm sorry girls I will try better next time lol. I may even change it for a sentiment tomorrow before I take another pic.
Well not much more to say about this card except I messed it up but I can enter it into the Cupcake Craft Challenge because they want you to do some distressing and as you can see I have been let loose with the ink, and also distressed the edges with my really expensive distressing tool......that would be my finger nails lol.
I just made the flowers with a bit of lace some little rose buds and added the little pearly bits that were off another bunch of flowers that are way too big to use on cards and I just cut them down to size.
Well I hope you like it anyway.
