This week Daring cardmakers has a really cool challenge -- GOING POSTAL !! So, obviously i thought VINTAGE!! I mean it had so so much scope to ideate and innovate i went bonkers . It was so much fun trying to plan this card .. although without most of my supplies it took me like forever to make it.

I based the card around the postcard and the pinup girl.. I actually made the postcard on Photoshop and just printed it and then coffee stained it. I decoupaged the pinup girl image.. I inked the edges of my based cardstock the white mat for the PP. The background PP was plain black so i scrunched it and sanded it to get the really grudged look.Added some really cool metal flowers and then added the bling in the center to make them pop!! I have two different laces on there both originally white i stained the lace on the bottom with coffee again .. Added the huge charm and finished it with little seed beads in the center.
I matted the postcard on white cardstock, then i distressed with scissors (which can be very tricky if your not careful). Because i thought the postcard need a mat.
I am entering my card for
