Charisma Cardz Vintage

This post should of been on first thing this morning, but my youngest Daughter decided that she would stand on my keyboard just as I logged into blogger to publish it and my computer went off and wouldn't go back on!!!
Eventually Barry got it working again for me. No idea what was wrong with it, I thought she had stood on the sleep button and the computer went for a snooze but normaly when that happens (my kids have pushed the sleep button a lot!! lol) the power light flashes on and off but this time it went off altogether and wouldn't go back on. At least it's fixed now though.

It's my turn to host the challenge this week at Charisma Cardz  and I chose Vintage.
I love the vintage style but don't do it very much because I don't think I am very good at it lol.
I think soem of the girls at Charisma could of killed me for choosing vintage because a few of them have never done vintage cards before lol,  but they all done a fab job and have made some lovely cards :)

The image is a Penny Black one which I got from a lovely blogger friend and coloured with Promarkers.
The background paper is Paper Cellar from the Victorian Classic pad, the music paper and faux stamp is from a set that another lovely friend gave me and the sentiment tag is also from the same friend (thanks hunnie xx).
I distressed and inked all teh edges of the papers and added some wide lace from my stash. No flowers again on this card! I will be getting withdrawl symptoms soon!! lol

 Thanks for stopping
