Hi again!

I'm here with more challenges :-) xx

Well I got inky with this card lol! Lots of the challenges were connected with Vintage, tearing and distress. I have used K & Co papers and torn them and used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo on the edges. I then got a baby wipe and wiped over everything to blend in a bit more.

I painted 3 apple shaped chipboard pieces and popped on a sentiment which reads "You're the Apple of my Eye".

The image is by the wonderful Karen Johnson called Tea with Grandma, this fell in nicely with the challenge for Polka dot tea party!

The ribbon for the bow along the bottom in green is from DCWV. I then popped on some fabby flowers and made the centers using buttons.

Although the image is not stamped, the Happy Birthday is along with the swirls around the edge of the card.

Here are the challenges:-

ABC Challenge - Vintage

Stamping sisters in Christ challenges - Distress/Vintage

Creative Inspirations - Distress

I Love Promarkers - Sketch (Edit - Top 3!)

Passion for Promarkers - Anything goes

Creative Card Crew - Pink & Green

Shabby Tea Room - Polka dot tea party

Karen's Doodles - Buttons & Bows

Penny's challenge - Fruit and/or Veg

Little red wagon - Birthday

Ink on my finger's Sunday Stamper - Rip it up

Hope you all like the card xxx Thanks for looking xxx
