VINTAGE CARDS FOR ANY OCCASION

HI EVERYONE
I have been so busy the last few days as I am in the process of making 50 cards for a delightful little craft store that has just opened up in Avoca.. I wanted to make something a little different from what I normally do, so I created my own line of Vintage Cards called 
"Yesterday, Today and the Past."
 Thanks to my wonderful sister-in-law Jackie, who supplied me with some extraordinary images that she bought the rights to, I had fun choosing the images I thought would look nice on the cards.
Here is the first of four....
There is no designer paper here, I made the background paper from ordinary white paper, scrunched it and used red and cranberry distress inks and then sprayed with iridescent Memories Mist. The flower I made with TH tattered flowers die and sprayed that too.
I also added lovely white lace and pearls and too finish it off used a Christmassy image. 
I'd love to get some feedback and tell me what you think of them:)
PAPER PLAY CHALLENGES - white and one   
WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGE - lace and pearls
DREAM VALLEY CHALLENGE - monochrome 
CRAFTS 4 ETERNITY - anything goes
CRAFTY CATZ - things with wings
BIRTHDAY SUNDAES - ribbon 
SHELLY'S IMAGES - tictactoe/ bling -free-flowers
SWEET STAMPIN - lilac and lace 
AUD SENTIMENTS - happy birthday
ABC CHALLENGE - anything goes
ALL SORTS - 5 flowers ( I have more than 5)
MARIANNE'S DESIGN DIVAS - bloom and grow
CRAFTS AND ME - flowers
MY SHERI CRAFTS - think pink 
GLITTER GEEKS - shabby chic
DELIGHTFUL SKETCHES - pearls and swirls
As always thanks so much for looking..Your comments always make my
day and inspire me to keep creating:)
Hope your tomorrow is creative and happy
Huggs
