Old Fashion goodies..









                          who doesn't like those old fashion Victorian images?   Old world Santas and sweet cherubic angels.   I never tire of them and there seems to be countless images which means endless possibilities when it comes to creating with them.  It is my day to share a little something something over at the RRR blog .  I was having so much fun I made two cards instead of one. I have become quite smitten with the two tone gold textured ribbon . I used it on both cards. Love the iridescent quality it has.
The first card I did with more traditional colors..with reds and golds I added a bit of 1/2 inch wrinkle ribbon in red to pop off the gold ribbon on the first card. The second I did more neutral with the golds. It is fun to see the outcome with the same ribbon but with different color combos. I also added some lace to both cards using the Penelope lace in natural . So have you started with your Christmas cards? It will be here soon! Hope you have been inspired! As always thanks for letting me share.  I have come around to visit many of you so that you know.  I tried to comment to some...but discovered that you do not have a blog.  I wanted to say thank-you to you for visiting!    Hugs, Cherry

Beautiful Cherry! I'm loving the Victorian feel ... you've inspired me to go "gold digging" in my scraps for just a touch of that shimmery goodness! Thanks for the kind words on my blog - I appreciate you stopping by.
