Vintage Trudy

Hey everyone! It's Thursday already therefore a new challenge over at Digital Pencil Too. This week we have a great theme for you to follow: vintage with distressing and lace. Isn't that fantastic? I really hope many of you will pick up a favorite Mo Manning image and join us in the fun.
I'm far from being happy with my card today - don't expect to inspire any of you...lol- I was totally on the run and uninspired all week so I guess you will just have to take it as it is and have it as a starting point for something really gorgeous... as I intended it to be at first but didn't turn out right...lol.
Well, then the cherry on top was that both my laptops broke down- one just went black last week- didn't bother too much about handling it over to the IT man, knowing I had another one who has never betrayed me in 5 years, but, ironically, a week later this other one crushed too. Now I have to work in a hurry as hubby needs this one at work. The worst part is that I don't have anything digital to work with. Hope those IT people are gods who can retrieve everything and have my laptops back soon. It's so strange without:)
Ok, so here's my card:

It's also finished in the inside to match the front but have no pictures and no card anymore:(

Recipe:
Stamp: Mo Manning- Trudy and her party dress- freebie on Mo's Facebook page
Coloring: Promarkers
DP: Echo Park- For the Record - digital and a vintage photo from internet- I shall add the link later hopefully

Sentiment: freebie from here

Hi Iulia! THis card is gorgeous, do you hear me? Gorgeous!! I loved it from the first time I saw it in the yahoo group.
I'm so sorry to hear youve got computer troubles. Only last week I bought two flashdrives to back up my digis since I had zero back up on my computer and it was acting funny. Its back to "normal " now but I feel so much better knowing my digis are safe. Now Ive just got to remember to put new ones on the drive as soon as I get them!
