Glimpses of silk; a collage of antique French ribbons, lace and trim


I made my first Christmas card using a collage of antique ribbons, lace and trim. A handwritten letter from 1859, some antique metal sequins. Tones of Greys, gold, Eggshell blue and black.  It is going to a very special person and I hope they LOVE it!

In the process of digging out the right items for my card I came across these antique silks, embroidered, hand cut velvet, hand painted, delicious tiny handwriting denoting the ribbon design and name.
