Sigh... vintage

Why do I do this to myself? Participate in difficult challenges? Guess it is a exercise in expanding my creative prowess. I have such a hard time with vintage and am never really happy with the result. I've attempted a card for the Embellish Vintage Colour Challenge - Rust, Yellow and Green. One of the DT examples is Tina's amazing 'clean and simple' vintage layout so that is what I went for - clean and simple vintage.

Thanks for stopping by! I always appreciate it.
