HmmmmM VINTAGE ??

Hi there Peeps,
Today I have been slaving all day trying to make 1 card !! I decided to enter the Forever Friends Vintage Challenge. OK you say.. but  a) I don't usually do vintage,  and b) the sponsor is Stitchy Bears - which is great 'cos they have FAB images, but I was desperately trying to fit something I already have into a vintage theme AND incorporate a FF bear. !!!
Well, eventually I came up with this....


I used a little image called "Tiny Bubbles". She's actually a fairy but I clipped her wings. She was originally coloured in my graphics programme but the colours didn't work at all with the vintage theme, so I turned her sepia. She is mounted on a piece of copper card which I distressed with sandpaper. I used my Martha Stewart punch of a piece of bronze card, which is stuck onto some black crinkly stuff that I got out of a chocolate box :-) My flowers are made from a Making Memories box called Blossoms + Buttons.
I really struggled with this but have put it up rather than bin it, after all that trouble. Actually the more I look at it, the more I dislike it. It may not be here tomorrow !!!!!!!!
