OOH LA LA CREATIONS CHALLENGE - VINTAGE

Hi all, it is time for another challenge at
the theme for the next two weeks is
VINTAGE/NOSTALGIA
Here is my 8 x 8 DT card
I have used one of the beautiful images from the YESTERDAYS MEMORIES CD, I embossed a frame then distressed it with TH ink i cut it out then mounted it onto black card, the background has been embossed with an 8 x 8 embossing folder then distressed with TH ink and mounted onto black card.
I added some fabric with a buckle that I have had in my stash for a long time, I also added one of my triple layered crocheted flowers with an old earring as the centre, finally I punched 2 butterflies and added a sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
It would be so lovely if you could come join our challenge, if you need to be inspired then please do visit the other DT their work is awesome.
Many thanks for taking time out to come and visit me I hope that you like my card.  I would like to thank everyone who has left me comments on my previous posts I really do appreciate it.
