Vintage fashion


I've been playing around with some older bits and pieces as a change from my new stash. In fact the newest thing on here was bought last September. The oldest must be the feather. I have a bag ful of these and use them very seldom. I do love making this style of card and they always sell well at craft fairs so I need to make some more as I have my first craft fair mid February and need to build up my stock plus make some Easter and Mother's Day cards.

A lovely vintage card Marianne. Nice to see the splashes of colour with the pink and blue. Must admit I always struggle with vintage. But lots of inspiration here.
