Vintage Yes or No?

Hi Everyone

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Pearly Sparkles Challenge.

The theme for this month is Masculine.  We would love for you to join in and show us your manly creations!

For my DT Inspiration project I have a card to share with you today that features an image from The Paper Shelter and it is called Vintage Car.  I was lucky enough to win this image in a challenge.  As you may or not know I struggle with Vintage as a theme so I thought I would try and make a Vintage Male Card.  When I googled Vintage Male Cards they were fairly plain unlike the Female cards which are full of Lace and Pearls.  Please tell me did I succeed in making a Vintage looking card or is it just a card with a vintage picture on it lol.

I coloured the image using ProMarkers.  The Card Size is a 7" Square and My Base/Frame Layers are Bazzill Basics Brown Shades.  The Bacground Paper is from the Vintage 1 Paper Pad by Forever in Time.  The Sentiment I hand stamped using a Memento Cocoa Ink Pad.  To finish I added some Cog Die Cuts and popped on some Ivory Pearl Gems.

I do rather like how it has turned out and I would love to colour this up again in Ivory tones and try and make something that resembles Female Vintage.  I never get it right though lol!

 Thank you for visiting my blog today and sharing this card with me.  Please let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.
