Southern Girls challenge 'decade theme'

Challenge 27 at Southern Girls Challenge blog
is a decade theme. Choose a decade and create a card, layout or OTP project with that theme in mind.
I used the super mom image from Kenny K to create a 50s theme card for my mother in law. Now Im not a 50s child, in fact I just snuck in to be a 70s child. So i have no idea what the 50s were like, but i imagine them to be not really colourful and  a little plain. LOL well thats my interpretation anyway. So for this card I used brown and grey, with a hint of red, and not a lot of embellishments. I used papermania paper and bow, ribbon and flourish with a bling pearls.
