A little bit of vintage

Hi Everyone,
I have a card today for some challenges I would like to enter, it's been a while since I have entered any , my mojo has not been kind to me lol, and this last week the heat has dragged me down a bit , it's been in the high 30's so by the time I finish work I don't feel very creative , just yuk.
But when I saw the photo inspiration at Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge I thought how beautiful it was...
The colours are absolutely gorgeous and I thought it had a vintage feel. So I got out my all time fave Tilda with balloon inked her up and put on some music and this is the result.

I have also decided to do a card recipe at the end of the post from now on, then you will be able to skip through it if you want to.
Paper Creations Ink would like to see Die Cuts and / or punches and Papertake Weekly  wants Die cute Special , so I am pretty sure I have got both of these covered.
And a close up of Tilda.
MDUC , Just Magnolia , Magnolia-licious Highlites all have challenges asking for Anything goes , how great is that !!!
