Charisma - Vintage

Time for another challenge at Charisma! This week it's my lovely teams challenge week and the theme is...Vintage

Our wonderful sponsors this week are::

Simon Says Stamp

Who are offering one lucky winner a $20 voucher to their online shop!! Wow!

Pink Cat Studio

Who are offering one lucky winner 5 digi's of their choice!

For my creation this week I've used papers from my scrummy new Portobello road paper pack! 
I've cut the heart using my craft robo, and zigzag stitched around the edge with my sewing machine. 

The corners are made with a sizzix die and the ribbon is from stash. 
I thought about adding a sentiment but couldnt decide where it would look ok without spoiling the balance of the card, so ended up leaving it as it was!
