Always In My Thoughts - FFFC #106 Vintage

Hello.  Happy Friday!  Woo-hoo...weekend coming up!

And so...it's time for a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  It's our Challenge #106 and the new theme is 'Vintage' being hosted by the lovely May.  We're being sponsored by Live and Love Crafts.  You can find complete details of the challenge, the prize and how you can join in the fun at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  Don't forget to check out also the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created.

Here's the card that I came up with...


 
The sentiment 'Always in my thoughts' was a digital freebie from Create With TLC.  Thanks Paulette!
 
I was searching for an image to colour that would fit the 'vintage' theme of the challenge.  I don't have too many in my stash, but I thought this one would do.  In any case isn't she adorable? 
 

This digital image is of Alisa With Roses designed by Mo Manning and it is available from Mo's Digital Pencil.
