Shabby and Vintage

The House of Cards challenge blog is all about encouraging us at have a go at different card making styles. Pop across here to the blog to see all the details. This week it's the turn of the Shabby and Vintage style following a colour theme provided..
I'm not good at  vintage/shabby although I love it! so thought I'd have a go.
 Hope this fits the bill!

Various spray inks in Blues and aqua
Thick cartridge paper
Character Construction Stamps  Mannequin Parade No.15. I love this stamp plate.
Chocolate Baroque lace stamp
DI: peacock feathers
Adirondack: Cranberry.
 I think I've overdone the "shabby" why I think that vintage has to look a bit scruffy I don't know still if I carry on joining in this challenge perhaps I'll get better.... perhaps!! ;)

Here's the lovely ladies enjoying a fabulous coffee in an exclusive cafe somewhere along the Champs -Elysees
Here's the colour choice of which we are to use at least three

It's called French Cherry so my choice of stamps is quite appropriate.. although I didn't know the name of the photo until I uploaded it!! happy coincidence.
Thank you for joining me today.

This is simply stunning, Suzi! I love this card! Unfortunately I still have much difficulty to make this kind of cards, and it always takes me a long long time!
Thanks for visiting my blog and for the nice comment you left.
