Mo's Challenge #64 --- Going Retro

Mo's Digital Pencil 2 challenge this week has us going retro, leaving that to our own imagination.  I chose to make a collage of old postcards, vintage photos, antique lace and old buttons.  The center attraction is Mummu who always brings such joy, whether she is reading to her granddaughter, hanging the laundry, or dancing as she is doing here.

Mummu is colored with Copics. The dp background, postcards, and stamps are from K & Co. The buttons were in a big jar I keep on my shelf and the one in the lower right corner actually came from my grandmother. One of my grandmothers actually looked a lot like Mummu and she would have loved this card.

I haven't done a vintage card like this for quite awhile.  It makes me want to get out my box of old black and white photos and my childhood stamp collection.  What treasures they are!  Our most cherished memories are our richest treasures..... and one happens every moment!

Thanks for sharing this treasured moment with me...... enjoy creating your own!

Hi Barb...I am in LOVE with this card!!! I must get this image from Mo's store!! Your coloring is just stunning...and your papers and embellies couldn't be more perfect!!! I may have to dig around in my drawers and cupboards and see what kinds of treasures I can come up with so I can "borrow" your idea for a vintage card!! I'm so glad you joined us this week at Mo's...and so glad I found your blog! Love it!! And the puppy on the sidebar made me laugh out loud!! (My hubby is wondering what I'm reading over here! hehehe!) Look forward to seeing more of your creations! Pat Frank
