Vintage


I have wanted this Penny Black stamp for a long time and was delighted to find somebody on Facebook selling it for just £4. As she lives locally I didn' have to pay postage either. I diecut it with  a MFT stitched square die and distressed the edges with DI Victorian Velvet. The paper is Studio Light 31, one of my new pads from The Ribbon Girl. I added lace from Crafty Ribbons, ribbon from stash, a Gorjuss bow, roses from Wild Orchid, wooden birdcage from America and some pearls.

Lovely card Marianne and you were so lucky to have a good experience with FB - I was promised something and the person has never sent it. I know it was free but feel very let down as it cost me the cost of postage.

Anyway have to put it down to one of those things and thank goodness not everyone is like that.

Beautiful card x x
