En Vogue

Have to say I love this Flonz craft stamp because it reminds me of my youth! these are the styles of dresses we wore in the late fifties, early sixties, strange times for fashion as  as well as wearing these ladylike styles we also wore drainpipe trousers , I was thrown out of a dancehall for being "inappropriately dressed" because I was wearing them and the obligatory tight polo neck sweater, so funny when you think of how young people dress (or rather don't dress LOL) nowadays, still think we had the best teen years ever !

Anyhow, back to what I'm supposed to be talking about , made this card for Fashionable stamping challenge which is Fashion, one of my favourite themes ,just hard to choose which stamps to use. The background paper is dusted with Victorian velvet DI and then stamped with the same colour ,old butterfly kisses stamp used. The flowery/net trim is a bargain buy from the Works.
