Vintage Boutique.........Simply Sassy

Good evening all you olvelies out there how are you all? For anyone thats poorly I wish you better real soon, its just cack feeling ill isn't it? Anyway my Simply Sassy set 7 arrived through my door yesterday & normally I'm not one for inking rubber the minute it drops to the floor......tbh it can take me forever lol. Anyway as hubby ordered them & picked them I only saw what they were yesterday & yes I was drooling & gave such a cuggle.......he made me make a card with one of his faves, he has mainly 2 of this set & lucky for me 1 of them was my fave so here is what I picked........to make a card with today....
WARNING PHOTO HEAVY
This is 'Vintage Boutique' from Funky Kits.....isnt she gorgeous & this one is in my top 5 of all the sassy's & I love vintage........I even have a skirt like this but mine is in white cus these came back in last summer & they are lush & cool lol.

Yes its an easel card I do love these. The papers are from the new Bo Bunny pads which Emma has just got in stock I had to order all them lol. I have used 'Timepiece' which is perfect for this image.

She has been coloured with Copics will put the colours on tomorrow.

I've used 2 stamps for the bottom, they are both from LOTV 1 is the new postcard one that hubby got lme last week & the other is an older one which I got ages ago but its lay in my tin til now.

I used the postacrd stamp again for inside but left it blank so a message can be written there. They were all stamped using memento brown. The 2 on the bottom were distressed & inked with 'Tea Dye' distress ink to give them an aged look.

I followed 2 challenges for this card & 1 is vintage so everything has been distressed with my scissors cus I couldn't find my tooly thingy lol & then its all been inked with Tea Dye distress ink. Gems twill ribbon, lace ribbon & A4 card are all from my stash. The flowers are a mixture from WOC & Crafty Emma's.
Well thats it I'm off to link up then I'm coming round to see everyone's blogs who I havn't yet been to today.
Thank you sooooo much for all your lovely comments I love you all so much & thank you for stopping by.
