I can't wait to see what you are all creating with all of these beautiful images from Ladies Home Journal May 1900.

This is a simple card I made using one of the images.  I had a bunch of thank you notes I wanted to send out.   The image was colored with Copics and a Pigma Micron pen.  The background card is embossed with a Anna Griffin embossing folder and gently sanded.  I added some tissue tape by Tim Holtz to the edge and colored it with some paint.


  1. Love your card Cora - and thanks again for the images.

  2. Beautiful card Cora. Thanks for the images.
