Holy Cow I made a card!!

I bought this postcard about 3 years ago because the pretty girl reminded me of my sister. Then when my mother reminded me that it's Lindas 40th birthday soon and was I going to make a card? I pulled this one out of my postcard box.


I have used a Vintage Rose image from Dover Crafts especially for Helena and Pollys card challenge on A Vintage Affair. The backing paper I think is Anna Griffin and the saying is K&Co.

Don't expect to see any more cards in the near future!! Just making this one stressed me out enough.

Love and happy birthdays

Lovely card Ruth, I saw the family resemblance, I thought the little girl looked a lot like an older version of Georgia, beautifully put together XXX

Hiya
love the layout and overall effect, could you explain how the lace effect down the left in white has been created as it really looks good on this card and is the K & Co sentiment a vellum one?
take care and please do some more cards it is gorgeous
