Vintage Cameo TLC263 MMSC44

This card is for the Splitcoaststampers Technique Lover's Challenge - TLC263, found here: http://http//www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=483074; and
Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC44 - found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/.
The card base was cut out with my Cricut. The cameo is a digital image. I cut it out with a Nestie and mounted it on Core'dinations cs which I had run through my Cuttlebug with one of my favorite Asian folders and sanded to bring out the design. tfl
