Papercraft Star 106


What an incredible photo, all aged and crinkley, my favorite browns.

I thought for sure I would be doing a card just like it, but somehow, somehow, it turned out like this ??

How does that happen ??  I thought I took out the brown stuff, but it turned all soft and girly and pink.

So, at Papercraft Star this week our challenge is to use a map.  When I made this card I was thinking about someone from long ago, a woman who left behind her dear friends to come to America to seek a husband, a man who didn't know about her past. 

I just finished watching "Wives and Daughters", and sadly, a young lady's reputation was put at risk as she was seen passing a note to a gentleman.  tsk tsk

Stop in at Papercraft Star - another simple challenge for you.  Maps don't have to be about men !

  1. Love the pink sweet card! Wow this just makes me miss Downton Abby! Love all the little sweet details.


  2. Beautiful card, Jan, I love all the sweet images! You captured the essence of a long journey, I can't even image having made it as I can't handle 10 hours on a plane. I remember my first trip to Singapore, it was a 24 hour trek with my three children and my Andrew,a 6week old baby!!!Yes, I am enjoying the Olympics! Have a wonderful day.

  3. LOVE how you were inspired to create this beautiful card, Jan! Absolutely gorgeous! And your ribbon and charm are such great finishing touches!

  4. Oh I love this beautifully vintage card! All of the details are wonderful. I love the added touch of the charm as well. Great job!
