Vintage 8x8

Good morning Bloggers, and what a beautiful sunny one it is too after a few very dull days. I hope all is well in your world...hugs.
I have been enjoying seeing lots of vintage cards lately and it set me to thinking, it wasn't too painful LOL. I went through my old family photographs and found this photograph of my paternal Grandma. On 26th December this photograph will be 100 years old, it was taken on my Grandparent's wedding day, and although I could be accused of being a tad biased, I think she looks beautiful!


I cut two 8x8 squares of plain white card for the base then ran the front one through the  Embossalicious  folder. I scored the back one about an inch in then attached with the strong red DS tape. Frame is the negative from a Nestie cut.
Punches used are Leone Em, McGill, Martha Stewart and Woodware with a dob of liquid pearls for the flower centers, and a scrap of ribbon from stash completes it :o)
