A vintage hello!

Hi all!  You know how much I love those Pollycrafts images and this week their Monday challenge is a sketch with a vintage theme.  I'm not well versed with the vintage style so I kept mine pretty simple...

 
 



Is it vintage enough?  Not sure, but I think the colours and distressing help!  I used Vintage Ronnie that Paula created especially to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance - you can read all about it on Paula's blog here.

That's it from me today - have a lovely Friday!



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Recess
Stamps: Pollycraft Vintage Ronnie, Paper Salon sentiment
Mediums: Copics, Distress Ink in Antique Linen
Accents: clip from stash
Tools: Nestabilities dies, EK Success border punch inside card, Tim Holtz distressing tool
