Vintage Ladies Birthday Cards

Hi Dreamers!!
I have two vintage birthday cards to share with you today.  And, the cards have a story too.   Here is the story.  My dear stamping friend, Sharon, is getting together 80 birthday cards for her Mother's 80th birthday.  Isn't that just the coolest!!!  I contributed 15 cards to the birthday card basket and here are two of them.

I used some yummy vintage images.  This one is from Treasure Cay stamped in rusty red ink.  I added lace and a pearl.  The sentiment is from Serendipity Stamps.  Distress Ink color- Victorian Velvet 

The second card has an stamp from Acey Deucy and is also stamped in rusty red ink.  I added lots of layers for interest, some Basic Grey DP, and a  magenta ribbon.  Sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Love these gorgeous vintage images!!  Also used Vintage Photo Distress ink.
