Double Challenge Sketch Saturday #11 ~ Caardvarks, From Your Closet

This is my first entry into a Caardvarks
Challenge. It's entitled 'From Your Closet'. Looking at this card it seems that it should have been called 'From my Grandmother's closet'... however I do have a pair of lace-up boots similar to these which come out each Christmastime when I go to a Victorian Farm to sing Carols with a group of my friends at the annual Christmas Market. We dress in appropriate clothing for the period and then return to my house to enjoy mulled wine and lunch. It will be here before we know it!
The second challenge is the sketch from Sketch Saturday #11
Laura Ashley Paper, Prima Flower, See Ds image
I enjoyed doing this one.
TFL & do please leave your opinion!

  3. I think that is so Victoriana, you must have a massive stash, to come up with cards so quick. I have some shoes like that in peal-offs, and I've never thought of how to use them and still look classy. Now I know. ...
