Something old



Here is my DT Card for Lexi's Creations - the theme this week is to use something old on your project. And the prize this week is a £10 voucher from Joanna Sheen. For my card I used Lexi's Christmas Morning image, but went with a completely different look than Christmas. I love this image and I think it can be used for many different occasions. I am using mine as an Anniversary card for DH in August since it looks a bit seductive and I stayed with a masculine colour. I used some old lace ribbon and the wheat/grass is pulled off an old candle ring that was in my dump pile. I am entering these challenges. Totally Gorjuss - for the boys, Crafty Cardmakers - man, Incy Wincy - Men, Cupcake crafts - man, Magical Crafts - man.

Hi Lori

Love the vintage look and feel you gave to this card. I would not have looked at the image and thought of seduction, but since you mentioned it I can certainly see it - haha you have a lucky husband!

Thanks for joining us over at Incy Wincy Designs for the "One for the guys" challenge I set this week!
