Digi Stamps 4 Joy Challenge #88 Vintage

Today i would like to share my design team card for challenge #88 at Digi Stamps 4 Joy. This challenge is being hoisted by Annie and she has chosen the fab theme vintage.
I have had quite a bit of fun making this card. Vintage has so many options from dark and grungy to steam punk or as i have done textured and pretty shabby chic. So please what ever your style come and see the beautiful cards my team mates have made, and hopefully they will inspire you to join in. I will give this card to my oldest daughter who likes to write letters and has a pen-pal.
Materials used to make my card
7" x 10" black tent card.
The image is girls by DS4J You can buy this digi or the girls separately
Decorative papers are by papermania from the Portabella road collection
Solid card stock is by American Crafts
Fabric covered buttons
Dies are a combination of tattered lace and Xcuts
Distress stickles by Tim Holtz and Ranger
Ribbon and lace from my stash
Promarkers, ivory, blush,sun kissed pink, sandstone, coral Cinnamon and tan.
I used my sewing machine to sew the backing papers, ribbon and lace to the card.I wanted to do some paper piercing so i printed the image on super smooth cream card then onto some co-coordinating backing papers.
