Two Pastel Retro Cards

One of our friends is the South African distributor of Websters's Pages,  Darkroom Door Rubber Stamps and Crafty Secrets.  Elna & I are huge fans of these product lines and I've decided to create two retro cards using their products.

For this card I've used a photo image & quote from the Crafty Secrets "Girlfriends Notes" , half a paper doily, some ribbons and the Darkroom Door "Roses" stamp to create the background paper.

A bit of tulle behind the paper flower adds texture...

This card has more of a "Blue" theme and I just love the quote and image from the Crafty Secrets "Domestic Goddess" sheet of Creative Scraps.  The Darkroom Door Frangipani stamp was used to create the background paper.

Some rayon and silk ribbons finish off the card.

Thanx for visiting!
