MMM week 44 Vintage

Evening all I'm trying to catch up after the Easter weekend, I don't know what day it is and I'm missing my Charlie cuddles:)
The continuing theme this month over at MMM is Men and Boys and this week's challenge is VINTAGE.
There are some fabulous cards to inspire you by the DT so do check out the MMM blog.
I decided to play around with my Darkroom Door stamps, Paris collection and some DI. Here is what I came up with:

My base card is centura pearl and the edges have been distressed with Pumice Stone DI. I stamped the postcard stamp from the set with grey Versafine and the main image with black Memento ink. The Louvre and the lamp post are pop dotted and I used a gold PM to add highlights to the lamp and the signage. The smart gent is stamped on photo card and the sentiment was printed onto digital ticket stubs. I used a pricking tool to add some interest to the edges.

I had a lovely photo of Charlie at the weekend fast asleep on my shoulder and I used Craft Artist to make a  scrap layout. Thought I'd share it with you and hope you like it:)

Thanks for taking the time to visit and I hope you'll leave a comment so that I can visit you:)
