Up-cycled Greetings ~ Challenge

Good Monday morning to all! Just thought I'd share a couple of up-cycled greetings that I'd like to enter into the challenge over at the Shabby Tea Room. I started making up-cycled greetings a few months ago when I won a box lot of paper ephemera at auction. There were lots of old paper documents and some lovely old greeting cards with great graphics and I wanted to re-use them to make new cards so people could enjoy them again. You can see some that I created previously on this post HERE.
On this particular card, I used an old map for the background and the Certificate of Registration was found in the box lot. The antique car image is a printable image that I found online. The banner is done using Papertrey Ink stamps. The next card uses a page of old book print and the image was cut from an old greeting card.
I added some old lace to the side and some punched flowers and leaves. The banner at the bottom is also done using PTI stamps. Thanks so much for visiting! Blessings to you~ Birgit
