Flashback Friday

Although the below card makes me cringe, I love the challenges at Flashback Fridays. How fun it is to look back and see how our crafting style has evolved :)

This week's theme is "black and white". I dug through the archives and found this gem:

Circa March 2009.

Yikes.. check out the staples! And... I do love that pop of color, but red and gold with black and white.. really Suzanne?

Things I like:
1. That fabulous camera angle..  just kidding ;)
2. The vellum.. I should break that out again sometime.
3. That I embellished the inside (even with the hideous corner punch lol!)

And the best part.. IT'S FRIDAY! :)
I thought this week would never end lol.

Isn't it fun to see how our style evolves (I do the same cringing when I look at any of my photos from the 80's) ... and also the things we still love ... so glad you joined our FBF 20 celebration.

I cringe also...my photo's had such a dark b/g..what was I thinking? LOL! That splash of color is great, and you know, we still do use staples or your glue dots would show right thru the vellum! Thank you so much for joining in on the Flashback Friday challenge...you are fantastic!

Oh, I think this is so sweet. The vellum is luscious. And staples? Why not--just about every other way to attach it shows right thru! Thanks for sharing your first black/white card--it's so fun to see!!
