I've used one of the papers from the Linen Closet with a script paper from Pink Petticoat, the snail image is a freebie from the internet with my own comment. Gorgeous flowers from Prima with such subtle colours. Ribbon and pearls from a dollar store in Canada. I love receiving real mail and I'm lucky to have a couple of friends who take the time to write. This card is dedicated to OAP on the MSE forum, she was my inspiration!
The paper pad from Papermania reminded me so much of wallpaper from the 50's. All those big blowsy pink and red roses and satin eiderdowns and real woollen blankets, bundles of letters tied with pink ribbon hidden in a drawer. I had a maiden Aunt who always wore Evening in Paris perfume. These papers are so evocative of those times. I'm looking forward to using them again on something girly. Birthday sentiment from Craftwork Cards mounted on the SU 1.3/8" and 1.3/4" round punches bought from the fab Monica's blog over on My Many Many Passions. I'm a virtual hostess in one of Monica's clubs and a real fan of her creations. Buttons have a tiny pearl popped in the middle seemed to remind me of the buttons on the vest my mother used to keep me in 'til at least the end of May. I used to get hot and bothered but hear her say "Ne'er cast a clout till May is out". I still don't know what she meant!
