Vintage purple

As John is in hospital, having his angiogram yesterday, I tried o keep busy. I thought I might attempt a bit of crafting, but so far ... nothing.

However, this is a card I made some time ago, but didn't blog. The papers are all from my offcuts box including a piece that was created with a stencil, acrylic paint and my gelli plate. It's an unknown vintage photo plus a little topper left over from a small kit - the bird is gold foiled and shines better than in the photo!
