Hello to you all and I hope you're having a great weekend so far.
I have an old postcard from 1917 and I decided to try something different and make a card with it. I'm not too sure about how it worked out.... maybe it's because of the colours and probably would have looked better using sepia / cream / beige tones, or perhaps it needed lace and frills.
The postcard has a verse about love - so great for Valentines day. I'm also trying to keep to my resolution of using new purchases before putting them away (the Hummingbird die) and retrieving from the cupboard those things never used (the stamp). So here's my card and it would be great if you could leave me a comment to let me know what you think.
This is what I used
Postcard (postmarked 7 April 1917)
Stamp - The Floral Collection (came free with a magazine ages ago) coloured with Promarkers
Paper - Raspberry Road Designs
Dies - Marianne Creatables LR0147 birdcage (available from J & C Creations here),
Marianne Creatables LR0143 corner, Cheery Lynn B193 Hummingbird, Cheery Lynn DL112 Exotic Butterfly
