Vintage Christmas


A Gem Of A Challenge (38) - Sketch
C.E.S. (70) - Checks
Secret Crafter (170) - Ribbons
Charisma Cardz (4) - Vintage
Colour Create (89) - Light/Dark Browns/White or Cream

Another Christmas card today, this time with a vintage feel. I have used the lovely sketch provided but turned it and added a corner. I have coloured the image with promarkers and distressed it with ink and chalk. I have also distressed the check paper in a similar fashion before adding some organza ribbon and slider to it. To finish the card I added some paper flowers with card candi centres and some punched gold leaves. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
