Vintage card


I made this card for DCM's vintage challenge.
I used a photo taken from me as a one year old. (Makes me think am I really that old; vintage!!!) I colored the photo lightly. I then bumped the dress, I'm wearing at the photo, to scanner and got my background paper. Those metal fasteners are also as vintage as the photo; they have been saved from a vest I had about forty years ago!
I'm going to give this card to my mom at mothers day. Hope she'll love it. (Here in Finland we have the mothers day still ahead, we spend it the second sunday of may.
