Days Gone By!

I got this stamp last week and I love it - it will get a lot of use - I love the vintagey feel of days gone by it evokes- when men were very snappy dressers. I stamped in distress inks and embossed onto a cream card - I've kept this one quite clean looking but this stamp just calls out for distressing and inking around the edges- next time lol




I am entering this into the following challenges
Charisma Cards - embossing - wet or dry
PixieDust Studio - Happy Birthday
Top Tip Tuesday - Layer it up
Make it Monday - anything goes
