Anzac / Easter Monday Fun

Wow, I'm enjoying this little run of 'mojo' and am going to enjoy it while it lasts. It certainly does help to have such awesome challenges to enter though.

I wasn't sure that I'd manage to get this card made and image coloured today - we were up at 4am to head off to the Anzac Dawn Service and I didn't get much sleep last night (always the way when you know you have to be awake so early lol).  I managed to grab a "Nonna Nap" for an hour or so when we got back (until the very low flying jet made it's way over our house .....) so decided to be productive for the rest of the day and rather than do housework I chose making this card instead LOL.

Anyway, this is to enter into the Pollycraft Monday Challenge, (amongst others) which is a vintage theme following a sketch by Maria as well.  I had so much fun challenging myself with this one coz I really do love the whole vintage/shabby chic thing but I can't always get my thoughts onto the card!!  I will say it again though - I CAN"T WAIT TIL MY WILD ORCHID FLOWER ORDER GETS HERE!!!
