Verily Very Vintage

If our links list is anything to go by, Lythan's monochromatic dare is definitely inspiring lots of you - but there's still a few days to go, so if you've not got your name on the list yet, then please, please have a go at this fab dare - hey, all you need is ONE colour.....how hard can it be?
So, what do we have to amuse you midweek this time then?
Well, we've got another retro themed challenge, but this time we'd like you to go way, way back and think Vintage. We'd like you to make a card with a vintage theme, or maybe a modern card but using some vintage elements, so some of those gorgeous "vintage" style rubber stamps would be wonderful, or you could use old paper, photos, an old buckle, some old beads, bits of old lace - the whole history of the world is your oyster for this one!

As usual some of the Design Team have made cards to get you thinking. Don't forget to come and leave us a message when your card is made so we can all come and have a look at your creations.

Gillian, you made me mad with this word. I don't know what heritage means exactly. Then I choose the following:
