Vintage Lady




Hi folks, a little while ago I received a lovely email from Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs and he gave me a lovely set of  Original Vintage Ladies to 'play' with.  But,as you know, time has been a little short for 'playing' - been so busy with Wedding Stationery, that it has taken until now to use these lovely images.
I have five 'girl friends' birthdays this month, so decided this was a good place to start using the images, not sure of the DP,  embossed and sanded 2 toning co'ordinations, some lace and a few flowers.  Its such a pretty image, it didn't need anything more!

I am entering this at :
  Country View Crafts - Layers
  Crafting Musketeers - Vintage
  Simply Create too - Vintage
  Rhedd & Rosie - One for the Ladies

That's it for now, and thanks for looking.

Love all the pretty papers and stamping! What a lovely vintage lady! The colors remind me of the first quilt I made and a new doggie chewed it to shreds! Hugs!

Hi Avril, sorry I've been away from your blog for a while.

I agree with what you said about this image: it needs nothing more than you have given it. I love the image, it's just beautiful.

A gorgeous card.

Sounds like you're very busy so good luck with all that!

Gorgeous, Avril... Love the contrast of the peachy pinks with the turquoise and blues. The embossed panel looks so lovely too, and that lace is delicious.
