Art Deco style

 Good morning, this fortnight's challenge at Fab'n' Funky starts today, Buffy is hosting and has picked the theme of Retro or Vintage. I made an art deco style card using a lovely digi from the Paper Shelter, which I've coloured with markers and fussy cut. Using nesting dies I die cut a panel of white card and used two different stencils and black ink to create the background, then mounted it onto a panel cut from rose gold glitter card. I needed something for the corners of the black panel, didn't have a suitable die so I cut some thin strips from the glitter card which I think work quite well with the design. 

Thanks for visiting- now please hop over to the challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my lovely teamies and to enter your own wonderful creations.

LOL! Wish I still looked like that, and could wear those types of shoes! Remember the mini's and then the maxi's? I loved them both! Not to mention the "don't button all the way up skirts" LOL The deco die cuts and classic black and white really make your card lively and beautiful! So glad you liked my freebies. It's been a while since I had made some.
