Make My Monday - GDT - Vintage Fashion



No your eyes dont deceive you - it really is a Monday and yes, tis' a post from me!! :) lol.

Last month I was absolutely thrilled and very honoured to be asked to be the GDT for September by the lovely ladies over at Make My Monday - thank you so much! :)  The theme of 'Vintage' runs for the whole month, and this weeks challenge is 'Vintage Fashion'.

This had me scratchin' my head a bit, as though I love vintage I dont really 'do' fashion of any era! lol ;)  Anyway, after a good old rummage through some of my mums stash I found these gorgeous wee cameos which I think came from The Glitter Girls(?).

I stitched Prima Faery Belle papers to black bazzill cardstock and used an MS punch for the deco style mat.  I used a mix of spellbinder and Memory Box dies, added flowers from WOC and pearls and pins from stash.  Pretty simple card :)

I would like to enter this card in the below competitions:

Wild Orchid Challenge - Layer it Up
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Crafts & Me - Birthdays

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and all the lovely comments, they always make my day! :)

I did do a double take as to what the day of the week is!! Love the way your pins make the brain think of hatpins when viewed with those terrific hats (um.. er... perhaps I just have a peculiar brain?!). Love the combination of black & aqua with the ptretty touches of white.
