Astoria Labels Valentine Card

Hello friends!

Linda here with my first post on the post of 2016.  I am so excited about the new designers and the amazing additions they bring with their collections. My card today is created using the wonderful Art Deco Collection by Stacey Caron.

the way they can be used with different styles – Art Deco meets Shabby Vintage
