i should probably mention that you don't need to have any ACTUAL vintage ingredients to link up your card with us this week, we're just going for an "old fashioned" feeling, so you can use some of the wonderful brand new products that have vintage flair; or you scan/stamp (or surf for?) and print out copies of old postcards, greeting cards, etc. we're going for the vibe, here, not the provenance! in my case, i've got some of "the real deal" just because that's the sort of thing i love and collect. so my focal image is cut from one of the old christmas cards my uncle's mother used to save, the vintage lace is from the collection of a seamstress my mom's neighbor used to know, my white tree is made from garage-sale-acquired doilies, and the tree behind that one is beautifully patina-ed old sheet music.
