Vintage @ The Crafty Pad

Good mornings beautiful peoples :) 

Sundays generally mean 1of 2 things around here ... a christmas card or ... 

And today the challenge at 

Oh Yeah!  A Happy girl! A can do girl! 

Well ... can you tell I am a little excited?  So I should be! I missed my last 2 challenges with moving house and all that jazz and this week, oh!!! has it been good to be playing in the craft room.  So less talk from me and on with the show and what inky messes I have been getting into! 

 A peak at the inside where I carried on the use of The Crafty Pad Designs- Dress form trio image also currently on SALE you can get yours from {here}

Now I will admit, I am feeling a little 'less is more' with this card.  Not at all my general style but I am liking the look and I just had to matt it, I tried not to but the urge got the better of me.  I raided the lace, the ribbon and the flower all from my stash and jazzed up the lace with some pretty bling and the flower was just  begging for some pearls too and I could not neglect her ;)  The Dress Form Trio would have to be my all time favorite image from The Crafty Pad Designs and I always have so much fun playing with it and finding new ways to use it.
