Memory...

My new favorite embellishments are the altered cards I have made using vintage photos. Made to look like playing cards, I really like the look of them on my handmade cards. Stamp Something challenged crafters to use their favorite embellies, and so this card has a nostalgic "memory" card on it :) I used the sketch from Flourishes, and used some of my favorite pink and green papers for the challenge at Cute Card Thursday.



Ingredients
Papers: MyMindsEye, Graphic 45
Embellishments: my altered playing card, teastained muslin
Ranger distress ink
Fiskars punch
