I forgot how much I like these stamps

I really have a thing about the fashion of the art deco era and 1920's ,the ladies just oozed glamour or maybe its just that I crave their skinny figures not that I'd want to be that skinny but I certainly wish I was what I was when I got married. Anyway this card covers several challenges one at least I know I missed the deadline for as on my little bit of paper I'd scribbled in block capitals today 10pm and now its the following day ,but never mind, whats one challenge.

The challenge I missed was at Charisma cardz no backing paper so I used some of the smaller stamps in this set to create a base.

All that scraps wanted us to use an old stamp and as this set was one of the first I bought I think that counts, I only remembered it when I read another blog and they were talking about picking your 4 favourite stamps and I remembered I had this one tucked away.

The new challenge over at Quixotic Challenge wanted a birthday card so this fits that challenge too and as I used ribbons and gems I can enter it into Creative card crews ribbons and gems challenge, even though I suppose my bling is a bit subtle but I think it just finishes off the design.
