Vintage Girl

Afternoon everyone... is it cold where you are? Up here in Yorkshire it's freezing. I have had to put the heating back on and have spent the afternoon in my craft room, hugging the radiator.
I am usually rubbish at distressing, but I wanted this card to have a 'vintage' look, so I gave it another go... and I am really pleased I did. Maybe I have the hang of it now.
Of course using my Tim Holtz distresser tool, rather than a pair of old scissors, is probably helping too!!

I am entering my card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which is a great sketch by Domi. (I rotated the sketch so that my image would fit better).

Stamp - GCS Artstamps, Little Girl - coloured with Copics and Stickles glitter.
Design Paper - My Mind's Eye, Life Stories.
Blooms and leaves are a mixture from my stash and Wild Orchid Crafts, sprayed with Tattered Rose Glimmer Mist and dotted with Stickles glitter.
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards
Ribbon and brads from my stash.
