In The Pink Challenge #72 Vintage/Shabby Chic

Good Morning and welcome to my post for the new challenge over at In The Pink. This fortnight we are asking you to make a vintage or shabby chic pink project for us. I always struggle with these types of cards as I can never quite decide if what I have made is vintage-y or shabby enough! I hope this one is!

I distressed all the edges with my distressing tool and then inked them up with some distress inks too.

My card is also for...
