Made this card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/ This is a fun, fun place and they have some wonderful prizes. Also, I found this challenge to fit my creation: http://dareu2digistamp.blogspot.com/ This is a challenge to distress. I did tearing and sanding on my strip behind the image. Doesn't show really well because it is so dark.
I used a digi image from Sue McMahon's online store: http://www.mcmahonfivedesign.com/ She has some wonderful images and some freebies, along with some great wood paper and other items.
You should pay her a visit.

What a beauty this is, Brenda!! You can only submit one card per sketch?? Oh, that is too bad, cause this is great!! I just love the frame and how it peaks up over the top of your card. What a great vintage feel too. Lovely card!!

OMG Brenda, this is outstanding!!! I've been really ill the past 3 days with severe strep and sinus infection, so I'm behind in galleries. You're just lucky you're in my Top 5 as that's all I'm going to be able to comment on tonight I think. I just love what you did with your card here and that frame is awesome. I love the b/g paper, the slider/ribbon, the image and the distressing. You really outdid yourself on this one my friend!! TFS!!
