1920





Oh man! I'm up to my eyeballs in diapers! After completing 3 diaper cakes I have 3 more on the go.... not to mention the yucky ones Emma surprises me with daily :o)
As busy as it is, I still managed to get a card made for a client. She has a 1920's themed wedding to attend and asked for a fun card. I don't do vintage often but I'm always up for a challenge :)
1920 images seem impossible to find. I came across this one online and gave it a shot. I tried to grab the 20's feel with adding feathers and some lace. Hope you likey :)
