Vintage ATC Swap

Maggi is hosting this month's ATC swap. The theme is vintage, so I've been wracking my brains trying to think of something unique to do for this. Maggi used her trademark pin up girls, Kim used ladies with hats, Andrea used little vintage girls, Von used fun advertising ads from the 50's, among others. I thought a California theme would be awesome, but it was very difficult to find post cards that were printable, and that would fit on my cards. I stumbled upon these skating rink logos, which I thought were really cool. They were also the right size for this project. I used only logos from California rinks, too! My ATCs were nothing to write home about, but I found some great sources for vintage ephemera online! Flickr has a bunch of groups for ephemera sharing! I also was able to break into an awesome Jennie Bowlin mini kit from a few months back! I love the patterns of these papers, with the vintage looking cherries and flowers.
