He Wrote Me A Letter

Carolyn you had me at Sepia LOL. How many choices! I am fortunate to have quite the collection of old lace and linens to choose from.
I found this picture and the first thing I heard in my head was the song "My baby, she (in this case he) wrote me a letter" - try and get that out of your head now!  Love how this turned out. I did some tweaking in PicMonkey to enhance the inage. Combination of papers, sewing, beads, old stamp and lace. Enjoy. Jewels
(I'd like to thank Mike who has a wonderful collection of Vintage Ladies on Flickr and graciously allowed me to use this pic. Remember, ask permission to use someone else's images - it's always the right thing to do!)
