Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--My Favorite Things!!!

I loved this challenge for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge so,  huge thank you to Dorcas, who is the hostess this week.  Here is the card I created using Adele :

My favorite things when creating cards or altered items, are vintage touches,  and this card has most of my favorites LOL.  The darling image,  Adele, is colored with copic markers and sponged with distress ink.
The base layer was stamped with  my favorite cracked paint texture stamp, an antique cloth doilie in the upper left corner and a string or faux pearls.  A band of vintage rose lace purchased at an antique store in Kansas and three ivory roses in the lower left corner and one in the upper right add the finishing touches.
So many of Mo's images can be used for the vintage touches that are popular right now just by the distressing and embellishments you choose.  Have a blast.  I always seem to migrate back to my roots of vintage when I am feeling my mojo gone, or needing a jump start, LOL.
Be sure to stop by the Challenge blog and check out the rest of the creations and see what the other DT members favorite things are, I can't wait to see.
I see that Mo has been busy creating new images again so be sure to stop by the store and  don't forgot that you have even more chances to win in the challenge as Mo is giving a gift certificate for every 25 entries so even more chances to win.  All you have to do is follow the challenge rules and use a Mo image...doesn't get any easier than that.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!!
