Vintage Card

Hi And Good Morning on this Bank Holiday Monday
Just a quick vintage card for me today been off work
all last week and never got a chance to make anything on my days off,
Just before work on Saturday i managed to make this card using
my new Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Patterns CD
 and the new Crafty Secrets Key of Life Stamps
never had the right ribbon in my stash just used what i could find
this is what i came up with the only stamping on this card is the
key and sayings, The image off the girls i think is crafty secrets i am not
quite sure as i got a lot of vintage images in my stash.

The card is 7x5 card stock I covered the front of the card with pattern
papers and edge the edges with TH Vintage Photo Distress Ink
all the papers on this card are from the CD and all the papers on the
disk are 12x12 i used Photo shop to reduced the sizes on the Vintage
notepaper and the music sheet edge both of the edges again i cut out the
image of the girls and adhere it to the music sheet i also added a key to the
side of the notepaper the key is from a necklace from Primark the left over
paper i used TH on the edge die and added it to the side of the notepaper
stamped a few sayings on the paper and added a stamped key the flower
i made out of some cream silk ribbon and added a button in the centre
I also added some cream lace ribbon down the side of the card.

Thank you for visiting
