Vintage Memories

Morning and we have a new challenge starting at A Inky Mess sponsored by LunaGirl.I used the beautiful vintage sheet Thinking Of You you get 15 images and a sentiment and I used them all!
I distressed all edges and used distress ink too-I made a box card using the Vintage ladies and sentiment on the front a few more images inside and used all the postcards to be kept in the box iside as memories.I was really pleased with this project as it turned out exactly how I imagined and no hassle whatsoever!!!
The paper is from The Works,lace/peel off corners/pearl heart/flowers and vellum teabag shapes inside all from stash.

Hello, Carol! I had a nice little scroll through all the way to your autumn card, catching up after our trip. What a pleasant visit I had here today! This project is truly beautiful and so perfect for vintage memories. I had to wonder if those postcards are real, but I followed your link and see they're part of the set. Beautiful!

It's always so good when the project turns out as you meant it to do. And I love all the 'vintage sepia' shades & goodies you've incorporated in this lovely work. (Especially like all the old postcards, and the photos are great too). I like the sparkle on the corners (quite Deco with the vintage ladies too) and you did such a good job - the delicate lace border is another nice touch. Good luck tomorrow with the tests! Sending good wishes & prayers your way. TFS & Hugs
