Verily Very Vintage

Hmmm was a bit confused by the name of the little extra 'Vintage'. On planet Jo, where I live some of the time (others may say most!) Vintage is anything 'not of the now' par exemple, today I have a dress on (don't worry it does have jeans underneath it:)). It used to belong to my sister *waves* and is *cough* a few years old so therefore is vintage... Looking around the interweb, I have discovered that 'Vintage' in card making is an entirely different affair. The dictionary defines it thus; Characterized by excellence, maturity, and enduring appeal; classic.
So I made this....
Paper is K & Co and Basic Grey, Printed Sentiment, K & Co Frame, Ikea Paper String, Prima flower, Eyelet, Screw Brad and Jewellery Tag from stash. Inking and Hand Stitching.
TFL :)

Lovely card Jo - love the flower on a male card, it fits in so well with the vintage theme.

Ooooh Jo that is so lovely....a sort of faded elegance rather than heavy aging techniques...beautiful.
