Vintage - FFFC #106

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday! Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am, it's been a long and busy week. Well my friends, it is time for a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenges. Our hostess for this fortnight is the lovely May and she selected Vintage as the theme.  The challenge is sponsored by Live and Love Crafts. OMG, have you seen all the products they carry?  They are all absolutely gorgeous! But don't take my word for it, visit their site, if you haven't done so, and you won't believe your eyes! Our fabulous sponsor is offering this store voucher for one lucky winner!
If you need some inspiration to join our Vintage challenge, go to the Fussy and Fancy blog and take a look at the fabulous projects my DT teammates have created for you, I have to tell you, they are all absolutely stunning!!
And here is my project for the challenge, I created this card for my uncle's 50th wedding anniversary. I used the adorable Love Me Do image from Wee Stamp. Aren't they the cutest couple? I also used Stampendous Fran-tage embossing enamel and Handmade Shabby Seam binding, two of my favorite products from Live and Love Crafts. Take a look at my card:
