Words from a Lady Driver


There seem be be a few new  interesting Challenge Blogs  at the moment, all with inspiring examples. I made this card after seeing  the theme of 'Your Favourite Vintage', over at  Frilly and Funkie. There is also some super tutorials there as well.
I do love making vintage cards, but never  think I favour a special style when making them. They just sort of happen as they are created.
For the  layers I used Kanban papers and card.
A variety of die cuts, Nestabilities [ layers], Memorybox [swirls] . an EK punch   and Sizzix. [rosette].
The old lace and button were from my stash.
The image and words are from the Diesel Punk stamp set by the Artistic Outpost.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
