Absolutely Fabulous

Hi again!  Now, I must confess that this card is a bit on the different side of things but The Shabby Tea Room has an inspirational photo that I just couldn't quite wrap my brain around!  I know it sounds silly but I honestly had no idea what to do with that picture. 

Do I try and make it vintage, or do I make it cutesy with little creatures on it.  Hmmm...Well, I tried to go Vintage.  Let's just say it is interesting...
