Vintage challenge

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to the latest challenge for Mo's Digital Pencil challenge blog and today our theme is "Vintage". This isn't my normal style but I have to say I love it and might do it a little more often.

I have used Ragged Angel on my card today and am really pleased with the way it came out.

She is colored with copics and although you can't see it there is a little bit of glitter on her wings, just a touch using a gel stardust pen. I have also frantaged the edges and added some liquid pearl berries to the holly diecut. The sentiment is from Whimsy. Papers are called "Norland" by Farmhouse I believe. They are my favorite xmas papers evah! Okay, thats it for me today, if you come back in awhile you will see another peak at the latest Kraftin Kimmie release too! And we would love to see you play along with our challenge for the next week, you could win a $5 credit to the store!
