Going Vintage with Elphine House Australia

Hello there blogging friends, I've got something pretty cute to share with you all today.  I created this one for this weeks challenge that just began over on the Elphine House Australia Challenge Blog. The challenge this time is "Going Vintage" - I usually do struggle a little bit with the "vintage" look when I do my crafting, but I think I might have gotten a little bit of that feel with this cutie... 
I hope you like it as much as I do.

I used papers from K&Company, and added in some torn pieces of a cardboard and inked it with Tim Holtz distress ink (Vintage Photo) I colored my darling stamped image (Daisy Standing Tall) from Elphine House Australia with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is a sentiment that I created, and the rest of the details were items I had in my stash.  =) I've entered this card into these challenges:
