Good morning
Well just got my son off to school, he's in the middle of his mock GCSE's so a very stressful time for him (and me lol!) at the mo! The good news is that they will be finished at the end of the week so he gets an extra week off school for the holidays!
Anyway today I have a card to show you that I made using one of the wonderful vintange images from Peggy loves Vintage. For those of you that don't know Peggy she has the most beautiful vintage images collections which you can purchase in CD form or as downloads in 'cut out' collections of 6 images and I have to tell you the quality of the images is superb.
My card today is really simple as the image is so fabulous I didn't need to do much else!
The base card is red mirrisilk card and has been embossed with my CB 5x7 folder from the Oh My Crafts Christmas exclusive set (my new fav folder at the moment!)I scored a line down so I had a little border edge and added some gold ribbon from Costco and layered on some red rouched ribbon with sequins running through it from Hobbycraft. The adorable image which is from 'cut out' collection 'Angels 3' and printed on to photo pearl card and pop dotted and matted on to gold mirricard. I then added a gold christmas peel off to the image and called it done!
I so love this image, it reminded me of when my son Connor was little and was one of the 3 Kings in his school Nativity play aah memories of precious times they grow up so fast!
I have photographed the card and also a close up of the image so you can see the wonderful quality of these images. Pop over to Peggy's etsy site as she has the most wonderful collections to suit almost any occasion!
Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous!!! Julie this is a beautiful card my friend. Glad to see you are being creative, my mojo is at rock bottom.(lol) The economy has a lot to do with it, as people are not buying on e-bay. I love the image you used, I don't have that one on my CD.
Hugz, xx
