Paper Sundaes - Vintage Luca

Is there an old saying that says "Try something new - you might like it"? Well if there's not, then there should be, because I DID and I DO! I did try it and I do like it. 'Vintage' wasn't a style that I naturally leant towards but you may find me falling all over it from now on. I really enjoyed using these subtle coloured papers and embossing those chipboard cogs. Plus, I loooved colouring in Luca with Copics that have not seen much action before.  

This week over at Paper Sundaes we have a Vintage/Shabby Chic theme. Tickled Pink are our sponsors and they have some fabulous Vintage images. Here I have used Steampunk Lad Luca but there are heaps of others to see. Have a look at the Paper Sundaes challenge blog to see the other creations by our fabulous design team.
I am entering this card into the following challenges.
2 Sisters #41 Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments #29 For a Male
Charisma Cardz #21 Boy Oh Boy
For your Inspiration #6 Photo Hot Air Balloons
Tuesday Throwdown #50 Stripes
