A little vintage shabby?

Hello and welcome to Saturday here on my blog and also at the Craft Barn, we have been a bit vintagy! I have attempted, vintage and simple? Well I tried LOL

I had a lot of fun doing this card, I love taking cards to the bare minimum and here I hoped to suggest vintage rather than show it and these dies are just brilliant! A lot of detail around the edge suggests a doily, to me :0)
This next card is using one of the motif dies from the same Spellbinders set . I'm totally hooked on these lovely shapes. All the details of these cards are on the Craft Barn blog and the stuff I used is available at the Craft Barn online
Thanks for stopping to have a look, I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Gay xx
 p.s Still having massive problems with my internet so I may have to rely on some scheduled posts and I hope you will forgive me if I can't respond. Rest assured I will be back! Said in good  'ol Arnie fashion LOL!

These are just wonderful Gay! I love the elegant simplicity of the second but the romance of the first is very appealing too - I like the suggestion of 'he loves me, he loves me not'! Have a lovely weekend, Vicky x

Oh WOW Gay . . . these are two absolutely BEAUTIFUL cards. I particularly like the black one . . . it's SO dramatic but still so feminine. How DO you do it O Talented One? xxx
