Heartfelt and Vintage

Hello!  I am back from vacation and ready with another Wednesday of Heartfelt Creations inspiration!
 This week I challenged myself to do a collage style card.  I think collage style either comes natural to you, or it doesn't!  And for me it doesn't so I have not done them before.  I tend to be very structured, so the free form nature of collage tends to elude me.
 I used several sets to make this card-

I am really please with how this turned out.   I hope you like it!  Instructions are below.  For more Heartfelt inspiration, check out all of the beautiful projects at Heartfelt Creations' blog.

Thanks for stopping by today!
