Family in the garden - a century ago

Sitting outside chatting to friends or family, that's just the summer thing to do... be it back in the old times or today!

Again I used an image from my Russian Impressionists postcard book. This birthday card is one of my favourites, I think the embellishments actually increase the harmony of the scene.

The fake snakeskin button is great for vintage projects. I actually have it in two sizes, this is the smaller variety.The flowers are made from a variety of knitting yarn.

I completed the card with a pearlescent envelope - mental note to myself: must get more of those!

Challenges: 2Redbananas, Stamps and Smiles, Cafe Mojo, Mothers and Daughters, Everybody Art, Flourishes Newsletter.
