Vintage Scene

Hello all!

This time at the Pinspirational Challenge, we have such a lovely inspirational photo, you can go so many ways with this!

You can use theme or colour scheme, you can take it very literal or just use the concept.....I loved working with it! My only problem was picking what I would take from the photo. Eventually, I spotted some postcard paper and a postage-themed stamp set, so decided to take the vintage theme for a birthday card for my dad, who is celebrating his 80th birthday on Boxing Day. Unbelievable....time flies!

I tried to really make it look like a postcard, with the stamps in the right place (I was also careful not to cover up the word Post-Card in any way), and it feel like I pulled it off ok. So how will you interpret this photo for your own project? Come on and join the fun! Our sponsors this fortnight are Elizabeth Bell and Kitty Bee, so why not take a change and try for a win?
