A Little bit of a Tassle between Our Vintage Affair and Dezina's World??

Good evening to you all out there in the land of blog, which must be oh so much drier than here in the UK at the moment
I can here the rain beating down on the roof of  my little Beach Hut and as I am typing here in our office the poor drain pipes and gutters just cannot cope with it all, but at least it is washing the dirt off the cars, washing the grass and watering those plants.

Our Vintage Affair                          V                              Dezinaworld          

As soon as I saw these two challenges I just knew that I had to enter them both, and then there was this tassle between which one to enter first, well I just had to combine them and enter them both with the same item, as that would stop my heading quarrelling with itself.  

Our Vintage Affair is a to Decorate a bar of chocolate
Dezinaworld is a little list
1/ Create a piece of art (one entry each only please ) ... CARD/ATC/ANY PAPER CRAFTS or other physical art ( Sorry no digital this time ) Using a Dezinaworld  Image - If you havent yet purchased any you can use any of the many DEZINAWORLD  FREE PRINTABLE  IMAGES HERE
2/ Make sure you are a follower - If not, then add to follow
3/ Make a post on your blog mentioning the 'Everyone Wins Challenge and  a photo of your creation
4/ Please tell all your friends so they dont miss out 
5/ Enter by adding your details to the inlinkz box below

I agreed some time ago that I would only make things that I could actually use, and this will make a lovely Xmas gift

here is my creation
I used some GCD Studio papers (those ones that are similar to the Papermania Silent Night ones) and I used layers of different colours, I distressed all the edges and used some gold mirror card to frame Dezina's gorgeous freebie (check out her page for your freebie's).  I added a little lace too.
I love how Polly uses the lacing with the eyelets and just could not think of another way of joining the sleeve that would be as pretty.

Here is a close up of that image
I used Tim Holtz vintage photo to distress the edges.

I was so excited on Saturday night to find that I had over 100 visitors view my site in one day an all time high for me, so would like to thank all of those lovely visitors and especially those that left such wonderful comments on the Secret Craft DT piece and the Glitter Globes (thank you Miria for reminding me of what they were called) I am still shaking them every time I go into the Beach Hut, they are so addictive.  If you did not get to see them, please look at the post below.

Hope you all have a lovely evening and that the week has started off well for you

Hugs Kate xx
