MMSC109 Vintage Gal

We are fast approahing the shortest day of the year here in the Southern Hemisphere, while those of you in the Northern Hemisphere are 'soaking up the rays'.....

whatever the weather one thing is for sure - Tuesday means Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge time!!

I am using Sophia's Stroll from this weeks sponor, the lovely Jeni from D'Amore Allure - I love her vintage elegance!  Sophia has been cut out using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Labels Ten Nestibilitie.

What vintage lady would be complete without some divine flowers

The panels and borders have been embossed with some Stampin' Up Embossing Folders - thanks Ann! 

You can see all of the dimension and texture here!  This card is for my friend birthday, she loves vintage and has had a MAJOR birthday in the past week.  I hope she likes her card!!
