It's vintage again ....

Good morning everybody

It was lovely seeing all the vintage fashion in our challenge last week, so thank you to all who joined in.  This week we are continuing our Vintage theme at  Make My Monday,  and this week the theme is Vintage Weddings.  So time to get all your cards done for any up and coming weddings you may have.  And please pop along to the challenge and have a look at all the lovely creations.

For my card I took an old photograph of a lovely couple as the focus.  The background is a paper from Maja Designs - their vintage look papers are so pretty.  My sentiment is computer generated, but I added a border around it with a stamp from Heartfelt Creations, using Victoria Velvet and embossed with Ranger Antiquities Bridal white.  However, all the embossed did was tone the colour down and there did not seem to be any real finish to it.  I have embellished with lace, ribbon and flowers.

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,
