Vintage and Card Making

 A few weeks ago, I came across vintage 1960s beaded clip on earrings
with no matches at a yard sale and I wanted to incorporate them into card making.

 My first thought was like many of you who commented, to use the clip on earring 
as a center to a flower.  Since my Mom had found some great vintage 
lace and beading that looked like it came from an old wedding gown, 
they became the perfect accent with this vintage earring center.

Since my recent surgery, my neck isn't cooperating with looking
down for very long while crafting, so I've discovered something
to keep me busy in the meantime...looking for vintage items. 

Go through your stash of goodies and look for old lace, ric-rac, etc.
and pair them with some vintage beads or jewelry and see what 
one of kind unique cards you can make!  

Don't forget to come by and let me know, 
so I can come see your creations!
