"Hope You Can Cling To!" Vintage Style Challenge

This has been, and probably will be, the hardest of all the HYCCT challenges for me. Since, I am new to card making and I don't have many embellishments........and I have NOTHING that is "vintage"......lace, ribbon, charms, became a bit of a "creative" issue for me.

I have literally been racking my brain since I saw this challenge posted. I kept looking at everyone's entries, just hoping that I would get an idea just so that I could START. So, I started looking for vintage images and Mike asked what I was doing. I told him about the challenge and he said he had a ton of images that were vintage and let me use the one in this card. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy to my sweet hubby!

Here are the details of the HYCCT - Vintage Style challenge: Today's challenge is to show us your vintage style! Use anything you've got: vintage-style stamps, images, gorgeous vintage laces and buttons...anything! And if you throw in some gorgeous vintage pink, all the better! Have fun!

Before using the image Mike gave me, I colorized it in Sepia brown using Paint Shop Pro X, so that it would work with the browns that I wanted to use in my background.  I really like how the card turned out, but I am definitely NOT a "vintage" girl!
