I recently visited a fabric store and it was like walking back in time. The store hadn't changed since the 60's. The fabric wasn't anything special, but they had these fabulous buttons. I think these antique buttons were the original thing, lol!
Here is a better example of that background technique I tried on Monday. (See last post) I like how the background turned out on this one much better than the Thank You Yoshimi card. It turned out all messy and distressed. Here's a tip: Don't go crazy with the sandpaper. Your paper will become too thin and fall apart.
