My crafty offering for today is another card for this weeks challenge over at Kenny K's.  The theme this time is "Vintage"
Starting with a 6x6 card blank (surprise surprise), I matt & layered some gorgeous vintage backing paper from Astrid's Artistic Efforts onto black card stock, then stitched around the edges!  I am getting rather addicted to stitching my cards at the moment, I think it makes a great effect!  I also did the same with the other two backing papers.
The digi stamp I've used for this card is Scarlett West and it was coloured as usual with my promarkers!  The finishing touches are some pink ribbon, paper flowers from WOC, some lovely die cut "Olive Branches" from Cheery Lynn and a sentiment from Lily Of The Valley which was stamped and distressed!

Then finally the inside of the card was decorated with the same lovely backing papers from Astrid's Artistic Efforts, it makes such a difference to do the inside aswell.  :-)
