Vintage Vogue

    I've just enough time for a quick post in order to be in time for this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.  I happen to really love vintage and lace so, again, I had to make the time to play.

    Here's the inspiration/trigger:

   Wouldn't you just love to be able to touch these or even wear them?

   Here's the card I made:

   I really had a difficult time photographing this due to the sheerness and shinyness of the organza window and this was the best I could do. First I created the window on the front. The clear  stamp I chose (Papertrey Ink-Mega Mixed Messages) was inked with Versafine Vintage Sepia and stamped onto a square of organza. It was placed behind the window and sewn on the front along the edges. I also sewed around the perimeter of the card. A newer bit of white lace was added at the top. The bottom piece is a vintage bit I had leftover in my stash and it was just the right size for the card. I added a length of silk ribbon over that. It was then embellished with two paper flowers(which almost look pink here but they're a tan color), some vellum flowers and white pearls.

  Wishing you all a lovely weekend. Thank you for your comments-much appreciated.
