CASology - Week 124 - Old

Hi there crafty friends,
The Cue Card this week at CASology is "Old", and I have to say, I was really stumped on this one! So, I went shopping in the Silhouette store and found an image of a woman for my card. I researched fashion in a few decades from the early 20th century, and it looks as though she is from the late 1920's, as she is wearing a Cloche (hat) and showing off her pearls, which are indicative of that time in history. Here is my card:


 I die cut the image in black (looks dark gray on my screen...grrr) and found a nice quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson from the SSS Floral Bookmark stamp set for my sentiment. I placed it on a dove gray card base with a very fine border, added a soft pink pearl gem on her Cloche and a gray shadow from Paper Smooches.

So, that's it for me...I hope everyone had a great weekend ~ Thanks for stopping by,

very cool card, Barb - reminds me of the 20's ladies in cloche hats that HA had on a set of stamps ages ago (i think i still have them!)

Such a classy card, Barb - and clever you for your interpretation! Absolutely charming; a perfect image to pair with that piece of wisdom from Emerson.

Barb I love all the thought that went into your card to make it so authentic! Believe it or not that is one of my favourite Emerson quotes. It takes me back to my university days! Thank you for sharing with us at CASology!
