Sarah Hurley Challenge: Vintage

Good morning everyone-hope you are well! Well its my first challenge on the DT at Sarah Hurley's Challenge blog and I am very excited! :-) I'd love to see you come and join in on this fab theme, Vintage!
This week we were sponsored by Altered Expression where I was given these gorgeous little Vintage Nursery rhymes to play with!
I wanted to use all the lovely Rhymes so I made concertina panels for them so there were three rhymes to each panel. I used the gorgeous papers from Sarah Hurley's Oz cdrom available here. You must go and peek-there are gorgeous kits and all sorts of crafting bits and pieces! :-)
I used two 5x5 cream card blanks as my base which I stuck together at the middle panel. I decorated the three inside panels first, using flowers at each end and a MS punches butterfly in the middle panel.
I then decorated the outside with the same papers, velvet look flower with a gingham button, a MS butterfly with a trail of gems and a handwritten Vintage Nursery Rhymes label.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Just Hanna Stamps: Anything Goes
Southern Girls Challenges: Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Dies to die for-punches
Ooh La La Creations: Punches/ Dies
Corrosive Challenges: Punches

Thank you for looking and for your lovely comments!
