So....Boxing day and I am off to my cousin's place for a relo bash and BBQ. It was also a chance to catch up with my cousin and her kids from Adelaide. She turned 50 about the same time as I had my little whoopsy mid last year and as a result....whilst I had the present all ready to go, creativity was not with me, so sadly nothing made it over. This led to guilt and all sorts of angst.
So....with new rubbah....I got off my keester and decided to make an appropriate card (sadly not the one I had hoped to give) and I wanted to try another Vintage type of card. Style Beautiful came to mind and I used this card for inspiration. Again...sincere apologies for the less than flattering pic, but I had to take it in my cousin's bathroom as I had no time to do it before we left!! It is actually a little softer IRL. Anyhow...here's my take...
I am loving the filigrees and flourishes that this set has and I think as I experiment more with Vintage style, it may get a couple of more gurnseys.
I even got game and sponged lightly the top of the embossed image. I was lucky to have a very similar folder to the set in my Cuttlebug folders.
I decided to finish off the present and card with a duplicated "50" in the same paper on a tag to go on the bag that held the bracelet I had bought.
Thanks for popping by.
