GDT Spot over at Ginger Loft Challenges

A few weeks ago I won a Top 3 place over at Gingerloft Challenge and on top of the honour of being on the Top 3 I was also asked if I would like to do a Gust DT spot!

Well yes please I would love too, so here is my card.

I'm actually late posting my card as last week Tammy had to go out of town so only the DT cards where posted and then well you know me I forgot to check if it was there later in the week! LOL

Anyway better late than never.
The theme is "Vintage" and as I was able to choose a digi from gingerloft, I went straight to the vintage section and choose this beauty!

I have distress the digi with Tim Toltz inks and then added some mega flake with flitter glue then in the flower centers I have used yellow stickles.
The Prima paper is just perfect as its also has wonderful sunflowers on, I have also used this kaisercraft sentiment, some punched flowers and this beautiful vintage postcard stamp all edged with distress inks.
Added some lush lace and a marianne die butterfly with a gem body which looks perfect and here you can also see that I have distressed the paper edges.
Final picture is a side view where you can get the gorgeous shimmer of the flakes.

Challenges I am entering:

Pan Pastels - Summertime
Cute Card Thursday - Use punches or drink related
Bearly Mine - Tic Tac Toe - Dies/Flowers/Sentiment
Southern Girls - Things with Wings - Butterfly
Craft Your Days Away - Bingo Flower/Lace/Gems

Thats it for now will be going around doing my comments.

My laptop has been so slow for the last week and was so fed up with it I just kept giving up but yesterday I decided enough was enough and sat removing files, restoring etc, etc and hey presto it seems to be working!!! Not bad for a girl who isn't computer literate!! lol

Don't forget to enter my "Thank You" candy which you can find here!

Would like to say a big hello to my new followers and of course everyone who leaves me beautiful messages and takes time out to visit my blog xx

Love and hugs Chanelle x
