October Afternoon Vintage Ladies' Card


I am happy to report that our granddaughter's birthday party was a success and they both liked their cards (big smile from grandma). So while I had out the box of October Afternoon papers to make Faith's card, I also created this ladies' card. The papers and the sticker sheet the ladies came from, are all from old Pixie Dust kits. I am little by little using up all the goodies from those beloved kits, but believe me my instinct screams HOARD.


The lace is from a garage sale my daughter scored for me sometime ago. I was hanging on to it, too. I really need to keep working on my de-stashing.


The flowers are, of course... Petaloo Botanicas with some of my new two-toned rose buds from I Am Roses. I tucked in ivory May Arts burlap string bows and Die-namics Fancy Flourishes. 


The ladies sticker is resting on a doily cut with my Prima die. They are popped up with 3-D foam tape.


I gave the gals some jewels on their ears, belt and shoulder. After all, a girl needs a little bling.


Still lots of rain in our area and way to cool for my liking. Thankfully the sun was out for a short while this evening.

Thank you for stopping by!
Linda

This is such a fun card, Linda! Detailed and beautiful, with a touch of whimsy, too, from those adorable ladies. I really love that garage sale lace, and the plaid paper just makes me smile. Gorgeous flowers and die cuts, too. Just awesome!
