An Oldie on Friday

Happy Friday to you,

Today's card is a real oldie.  It's made from a set of decoupage and papers that I bought in the days before there was such a thing as die cut decoupage.

The papers and black card were cut and mounted then the bird was decoupaged and stuck on top.

I added a couple of beads to the gold thread.

I'm linking to Erika's blog Snappy Crafts where she invites us to show a craft piece we made some time ago.

If you join in then leave a comment for Erika and she'll return with a comment for you.

  6. Very pretty, Barb! I like the Asian vibe and added beads! Fun to dust off the oldies - you were smart to photograph your cards before you gave them away. I never thought to do that before I started blogging.
