Crafty sentiments vintage challenge

Hello to all my blogging friends, thanks for coming by my blog again! Today sees a new challenge over at crafty sentiments whch is VINTAGE. This is such a fab challenge and even if it is a bit out of your comfort zone why not have a go?!
There are some stunning new releases coming out of the crafty sentiments store at the mo and I psormise to show you some soon but for this challenge I just had to use this spring Amy stamp as she so reminds me of a little old fashioned victorian girl in her pinafore dress!

I have followed the sketch this month over at CLP and have used beautiful vintage freebie papers from farfar hill (where else for vintage?!) My die cut ornate frame is from the fabulous hobbyhabitat, my flowers are wild orchids, my metal connector bead is a bargain purchase from a closing down craft store, my lace is from ebay and my circular sentiment is also crafty sentiments. I have used vintage photo distress ink on practically everything in sight!
I have tried to create as vintage a look as I can for my image with my prisma pencils.

I would also like to enter this into totally papercrafts happy birthday, pennys paper crafty anything goes and 2 sisters flowers challenge. We hope you can join in with our challenge this wk, why not pop across to see what the other DT have been up to!
hugs everyone
