DCM Mid Week extras - Vintage card

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!
====================
