SU Retro

A bit of retro SU stuff...old colours, old stamp set, but with a new punch and some "new to me" ribbon (although it, too, is old SU)

This is one of the first sets I bought from SU (Yule Bits & Borders), and I had thought it looked dated. But I was determined, it was NOT going to beat me. I had some previously stamped images that I found while sorting through some of the many clear envelopes of "bits" that have accumulated below my desk.

When I realized just how many images I had all ready to use, I starting thinking to use them together on a card...and this is what I came up with.

I haven't popped up any of the main image, but the thick ribbon (and the fact that I didn't glue all the way down to the punched part), makes it look like I've intentionally added the dimension. Don't you love it when things just fall into place like that?

...and this is the inside, all prettied up!

Less than a month until Christmas...Please tell me I'm not the only one who is in no way prepared!

I like this card - great colours, nice layout, and such a pretty interior :-)
