A Classic!

Hi there!  I haven't done what I call a 'classic' card in an age.  This is what I did for my sisters birthday today.  She is another crafter who is well into the 1930's theme and those lovely lady stamps so I went for something along those lines. (er...have you ever hunted for ages for your pic to find that you haven't even uploaded it yet???? PML)


The card was embossed with a cuttlebug folder and lightly inked with milled lavender DI.  As my sister must have nearly all the lady stamps from this era I found a very old costume book of mine and copied this image.  She is coloured with the milled lavender DI & put on foam pads.  Don't you just love that quote hahahahaha!!!!!  Here is the pic of the book page if anyone would like it..just right click to copy & paste it.

Thank you for coming to visit, please leave a message, I am always chuffed to get them, HUGS xxx
