Vintage Christmas

Hi everyone hope you're all looking forward to an enjoyable weekend.  It's wet and windy right now in West Yorkshire.  The fireworks seem to have come to a halt.  They seem to go on for weeks around here.

My card today is for two challenges...'St Lukes Charity Cards Challenge', which is to make a Christmas card, and the 'ABC Christmas Challenge', where you have to make a vintage Christmas card.

For my base card I used Kraft card and inked the edges with white, then embossed with white EP.  I covered the base card with a paper design by 'Quirky Twerp' at the 'Hybrid Chick', my doily is a new range by Marianne, to which I added a satin bow made from 15mm red satin from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. The glittered flower, mini postcard and gems are from my stash.  The greeting stamp is by WMS from the Say It Loud - Winter Holiday collection.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Great Weekend! xx

Well hello dearie :)
Since I am the proud and happy owner of one of your handmade jewels (and all the a-m-a-z-i-n-g- embellishements and wrappings) I can see that you put a lot of love and attention into this beauty too. That kraft base is a perfect choice and the colors speak for itself. Christmas is a wonderful theme to create with and you did an outstanding job. I love this!
Have a lovely weekend!
