Vintage Postcard

I was meaning to have a go at the Vintage Postcard challenge over on Something Completely Different and finally got round to it yesterday. OK, so the new challenge was already up by then, but I've never said I was a quick crafter, have I?

Anyway, here's my postcard sized vintage effort
I had a happy few hours rummaging my "serendipity/ephemera" drawer (that's my posh term for the "might come in useful junk" drawer).
Supplies: Distress Inks, Cuttlebug s textile empbossing folder, Photo is from the latest Bubbly Funk kit, the flower ribbon stuff is from an old BF kit.
Old sheet music and written bits from the junk drawer, Beads for necklace, Primas, Part of a chipboard swirl left over from something else, Stickles, Glossy Accents, Krylon gold pen, large rhinestone beady thing

I'm going to do the next postcard too - but don't hold your breath!
Thanks for looking

Oooh, that flower ribbon border looks lovely! Great vintage postcard - if you'd made it teal and brown you could have killed two birds with one stone :haha:

hi!

Absolutely perfect design! No wonder it attratcs so many people to post their comments. I would like to do similar works but unfortunately I always fail before I start due to lack of patience. Nevertheless, drawer-rummaging is always great fun (espacially someone-elses one) ;)
