Daring Cardmakers

Here is my card for the '60's theme over on Daring Cardmakers. Looks pretty retro, doesn't it? I've had that image for a while and am glad to use it.

Reminds me of the coffee clutch the neighborhood moms used to have when I was growing up (late '60's). They'd all take turns meeting at one anothers house for coffee and cake
. Then they'd sit around all afternoon and just gab and gab and gab. I don't think any of them actually turned up in pearls and dresses though.

Stamped the background with stamps from Hero Arts. Forget who made the alphabet.

Your retro card is charming and fun! I like the steam coming up from the cup of coffee..smile. Old cards are so much fun and have a beauty all thier own. Many of the ones I use are from a CD I bought.
