A bygone era

Please click here for a chance to win a 2-day ticket for the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace 20-21 September

I had a lovely box of  Pink Orchid toiletries for my birthday. As I opened the box I was surprise to see that there was a lovely pink and gold foiled piece of card at the back which was too good to waste. The square at the bottom of the card was cut from the soap box. The 'Pictorial review fashion book' paper is from some ephemera that I bought in a pack some time ago. I decided to finish the card with some gold foil strips and a Best Wishes sticker.
