A couple of months ago over at FSC, the lovely Shirley set us a challenge of Shabby/Chic Christmas, and I realised that I didn't really 'shabby' - more vintage - so I thought I should try to improve my 'shabby' - and the challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenge this month is Lavender and Lace - so perfect!
My 'lady' stamped beautifully, I decided to 'tint' her lips and cheeks to make it look more vintage, love the effect. The papers, old Papermania, are stitched and 'shabbied' to within an inch of their lives! The roses are a mix of ribbon and paper and my faux ribbon is paper.
I am also entering this at:

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last project - I really appreciated them, especially as this it was a bit out of my comfort zone.
