Arty Girlz Challenge

When I saw the challenge this week at Arty Girlz was to create something "vintage," I knew Id be joining in right away. I created this card using an image from my friend, Sarah. I also did some stitching which should make Jacqueline smile as I vehemently told her I would never use an iron or sewing machine for cardmaking. I did do the sewing by hand, however, just a couple stitches.
