The Play Date Cafe Challenge #82

Hello my sweet crafty friends!!! I'm here today with a sweet and calm colour story from Ruby at The Play Date Cafe.  I just LOVE the look of these vintage suitcases, they would be so cool to own :)



Here is my DT card:


I tried to make this a "vintage" card....but I always seem to fall short of true/real vintage :(....maybe I will call it modern vintage?!??! I just can't seem to do it properly!!! Any suggestions?? lol!

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, TRace
