I made this card for my wonderful aunt for her birthday next month.
The mounted picture is of "Elsie" my aunt's auntie (my great aunt) who died tragically at the age of just 28 in the early 1930s.
I used the Free Photo Editing Software "PHOTOSCAPE" which is downloadable from the net to turn the scanned photo into a sketch.
The "lace" is border punched card dabbed over with a cream ink pad and decorated with tiny left over negative peels offs.
The flowers were punched out in two sizes (3 of each) sprayed with water scrunched up tightly, reopened and left to dry which gives them more dimension.
The ribbon I had matched the background too well so I glued it onto brown card then mounted it with gold mirri card to lift it from the card.
