When I was a little girl, my Grandmother had a picture of her Father in an oval frame that had a tassel on the bottom of it. I just loved that picture frame with that oh so wonderful tassel. I remembered all of that when I saw the HYCCT18 challenge to make a vintage card and the SC303 just seemed to be perfect. I don't know if I did vintage or Victorian (the frame was from the late 1800's) but I sure did enjoy remembering that picture frame!
I did the cracked glass technique and then gold embossed the edges of the 'picture'.
Thanks to Faith and Julie for great challenges.

What a wonderful childhood memory, Christine. You've taken something etched in your mind and recreated it with such elegance and yes vintage style. I love the tassel and I absolutely love the gold edge embossing.
