Taylored Expressions #128

Hello.  I finally got some time today to make a couple cards.  I made this one for the sketch over at Taylored Expressions.  As soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for one of my sweet vintage images. 
I found this little crystal charm in one of my mom's boxes of charms.  Isn't this the sweetest little vintage image?  I fell in love with the soft colors.  It is an old Perfume ad.
                             
Sorry this is short and sweet.  My son has a TON of homework.  Research on the Iroquois Indians and Airplanes as well as spelling and a math sheet.  Go figure. 


Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Rustic Cream
DP: My Minds Eye, Basic Grey
Image: from my collection
Lace: by the yard at JoAnn
Seam Binding: Bluebird Lane Etsy

 Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather
