TPC #92 Victorian Theme

Hiya everyone.  OMG, I can't believe I didn't schedule me post - DUUUUHHHH lol. 

We have a new challenge for you over at Totally Papercrafts today.  This week it's the turn of my loverly teamie Victoria to host this week and she's chosen the theme of..........


Now before you all panic, take a look at what the design team have made to inspire you. You could interprete it as using a victorian image, you could use lace, pearls, ribbon; or antique looking papers, vintage industrial grunge also works well.

I quite like this theme but decided to use one of my gorgeous victorian image Christmas Stamps.  I actually decided to keep it really clean so as not to detract from the detail within the stamp. 

I've coloured it using my watercolour pencils and sansodor.

Please take a look at the stunning designs by my teamies and the sponsor details HERE.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges.....

Creative Craft - Minimalist
Deep Ocean Challenge - Vintage (my image is - delete if not acceptable)
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes Christmas
Bows and Berries - Clean and Simple

I'm planning to do some relaxing now after me night shifts this week.  I also have some news to share - the pupster, Harley passed his puppy classes this week and was also assessed for the Puppy Foundation grade of the Kennel Club's Good Citizen Scheme - he passed with flying colours - whoo hooo.  Next week we step it up a little and start training for the bronze award!!!!

Here he is, growing fast and full of mischief!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy your weekend.
