The reason I said this card is nostalgic, is that it reminds me of Mary Poppins and the scene in the movie with the woman feeding the birds. This is another card that for me, is quite simple as I have used only two dp's. These and the two buttons are from my stash. The lace is from Joann's; and the punch is of course, MS, that I cut into a strip of paper and punched on one edge and then did the same to the other edge. The corner punches are from Sizzix. And then I distressed the background paper and did some faux stitching around the outer edge of the nestible.
Here's a closeup of the old lady. I colored the image with my prismacolors and gamsol. I tried to color her skin so that it looked a little ashen, so she looked a little weathered. It also seemed to me that muted colors were a good idea.
