I just want a millionaire ......

Hello Folks!
The new challenge is starting over at Sweet Stampin' this morning. Our new theme is ' Vintage or Shabby Chic' which I have to say took me a very long way from my comfort zone. This card is nothing like the original idea in my head and nearly ended up in the bin twice - to be really honest I'm still not liking the end result apart from the sentiment. Anyhow, here is my effort:

The stamp is a very old and from Personal Impressions, coloured with promarkers and chalks. The paper is also antique (quite appropriate!) -  MME Wild Asparagus which I believe was a magazine freebie in approx 2008.

On a positive note I did use up a lot of flowers and a piece of hoarded braid from my stash. Also played with a lot of dies, nesties, MB trellis border and Die-namics floral flourish:

and the Indigo Blu sentiment does make me smile!!

I'd like to enter a few challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - Fabulous flowers
Crafting for all seasons - Ribbon and Pearls
Passion for Promarkers - Flower Power
Crafty Boots - Ribbon or lace
Penny Black and More - one for the Girls
Stamping Sensations - A/G with diecuts
The Ribbon Girls - January any Image Challenge
