Pixie Cottage Vintage Challenge

Hello everyone.  Hope your week is moving along smoothly.  We have a busy day planned today.  A little yard work, some house work and then a fun afternoon play date!
Today is another fabulous sketch challenge over at Pixie Cottage.  The sketch was designed by none other than   Suzanne Dean from Scrapbitz! !  We also have the added theme of vintage, so you can do one or both elements!!!  I went for both as it was such a lovely sketch.
I used Maisy and Matts Wedding by Di Carubia  as my image.  And I did NOT color it!!  How crazy is that???  When I was putting it together I thought leaving the image just with the ink gave it an older feel so I restrained myself and gave my copics the day off:)  I used inks and my distressing tool to age the card and finished with some stitching.  The papers are from bella blue by SU, one of my new favs for that vintage feel.  The other girls have created some beauties, please pop on over to say hi and enter for your chance to win if you have some free time:)
