Digistamps4Joy - Vintage Challenge

What does "vintage" mean to you?  Is it a style?  Or is it just something that you've had for a long time?  Is it something old?  Something new that looks like it's been around for years?  When I think of the word "vintage" the first thing that comes to my mind is cars!  I love those old cars!!!  When my hubby and I go to car shows he usually likes the muscle cars from the 60's and 70's.  But my heart goes to those earlier cars.....20's, 30's, 40's.  There is just something about them that I think is so cool! 

The new challenge at Digistamps4Joy is Vintage.  I knew as soon as I saw the theme - I wanted to use one of the newer images called "Dad's Austin".  I also knew that I didn't want to color it because I loved it just the way it was....sometimes when something is so perfect you just have to leave it alone and let it speak for itself.  I decided to go black & white with this card too...and of course turn it into a Birthday card because it seems like I never have enough Birthday cards.


I want to see what you think of when you hear the word "vintage" so come on over to Digistamps4Joy and share with us.  Remember that you can't win if you don't play! 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today.  God bless you!!!!!
