Is this really happening?

Woohoo Im on a roll....I think... ok so heres my little story , its
quite simple " I love vintage but vintage doesnt really love me " Or soooooo I thought, because everytime i would try to make a vintage card it looked more like a royal mess! Ok so I have been taking LESS time on the cards and kinda just going with what feels right instead of using my NOGEn so much (thats scary) .
But like everything LEss is More ... sorta right?
Ok so for this card I actually found some really cool FREE vintage clip art !!!! and then used some old basic grey paper "sultry dressy" I really hope you guys like it too and Im not this crazy crafter who "thinks" she can do vintage and really s
hould just stop hahahaha But I love this style so I think im going to keep on until I run out of my free images lol haha .

Ok ill stop rambling ... This card was made just for the Shabby Tea Room using their picture inspiration and using the CPS layout WooPWOOp ....
