A Few Vintage Style Cards

Hi everyone,
I'm so sorry that I haven't been a very good blogger lately, but I'm afraid real life keeps getting in the way.
I thought I'd show you a few of my recent cards, just to prove that I have been crafting even if I haven't managed to blog the evidence lol!
These are some 'vintage style' cards that I made for some of my friends' birthdays, I hope you like them.

This was made using Joanna Sheen's 'Fashion Boutique' CD. I love the 'Chanel' style of this image.  The mount was made in Greetings Card De Luxe, the border is using the matching paper from the CD and I finished off with some silver foiled card, peel offs and paper lace.

I used  'Abigail' from Just Inklined for this image as I fell in love with her gorgeous hat.
The lace papers are from Joanna Sheen's paper pad and the dies are Nestability 'Picot Edge Circle'  the other finishing touches are peel offs, lace and ribbon from my stash.

This Anniversary card was made using a favourite Inkadinkadoo stamp, EK Success 'Photo Corners' punch and a mixture of papers and embellishments from my stash.

And finally, this card uses another image from Joanna Sheen's 'Fashion Boutique' CD, Nellie Snellen dies and a mixture of papers and embellishments from my stash.

I hope I haven't bored you too much with such a long post, I was definitely making up for lost time wasn't I? lol
