Better late than never

Two days late but Ive got round to my card for Gillians fantastic Read all about it dare!


I used a vintage magazine ad from the fantastic Puss and part of a dressmaking pattern, dovecraft brads, some lace that I think came from a charity shop ages ago and twill from little silver hat. All on a Kraft brown base card. Thanks Gillian for a fantastic dare.

Oh I love it Rhi!

What a brilliant idea, and you've given me a bit of help for something I'm working on too!

Thanks you....

Rhi that was definitely worth waiting for. I've never thought of using a sewing pattern before.

Love the design, vintage is very me at the moment (when I aren't too cold to craft)
I thought you'd left the team, haven't seen you around in a few weeks.

This is so good idea. As I've made so many dressees and used those patterns, and it never came to my mind to use it to my cards. It has been obviously too near..
Card is very nice!
