Vintage ladies and Tuesday Treasures

I was hoping to get a Smash Book done for today as I had seen my blogging friend Silvia make one but hopefully next time round.
So for today .....

Here is a set of four cards, all in the same design, just different images. I have made them to be part of different sets which will become presents for our hosts and family when we go to America in the summer.
 I will show you the others as they get made.



The music score is TH tissue wrap, images I found in a pack which came from a craft fair eons ago. 


I stamped the French text on the backing piece. 

All pieces were lightly edged with walnut stain.


The sentiment and insert I made myself using frames from Digital Crea. Flowers and ribbon, a heart and pearl to finish it all off.




Aren't these vintage ladies treasures?

If you have something special you would like to share this week, please link below and I will come over to take a look. This is all about sharing the good things, the treasures we have made or just something special this week. It is just for fun so thanks for joining in.

Very elegant Brenda and whoever gets this gorgeous gift will be thrilled - can't wait to see the others.
Thanks for visiting the other day and for the tip about Pan Pastels, think I was a bit (?) heavy handed. Don't intend to give up on them yet but I can see they need a lot of practice to get right.
Haven't seen your blog hop before so I will link to my today's post.

Oh Golly Gosh!
What an adorable set of images, and how wonderfully you have set them, I am so pleased you kept them clean with just that hint of colour on the flowers; a gorgeous Vintage palette.
I do hope your host family appreciates these beautiful cards Brenda. If they are not that keen just pop them in the post to good old NZ, where I can promise they will be revered.
Smiles:)
