One Stop Craft Challenge 30

Hello everyone. Firstly a quick update on little baby Oscar. He is still stable and the special care nurses are pleased with his progress so far. He certainly is a little fighter. My daughter will be coming home from the hospital today which will be wonderful for Amelia; she has missed her Mummy but she has been an absolute angel for her Nanny during all the upset. Thanks to everyone for being patient with me throughout the trauma; I missed visiting your blogs and will do my best to get round to you all over the next few days.
Rightie-ho! I'm back making cards now so on to this week's One Stop Craft Challenge. Shelley has set the theme this week and she wants to see items that are:


I love vintage cards although I sometimes end up with a really distressed card rather than a vintage look. I hope I've got the balance right this week.

I know it doesn't show up well in the photo, but the metal embellishment in the bottom left corner says 'friendship'.
