Pretty Christmas


I've made this pretty vintage Christmas card for two challenges this week. Over at Just Add Ink the theme is just Add Christmas!!!! well that's a big Challenge - too much choice :) so I've combined that with this weeks sketch at Stamping 411.

I stamped the blossoms from Elements of Style in Marina Mist then used the Vintage wallpaper Embossing Folder. Stamped the main image again in Marina Mist from Welcome Christmas. layered with Cocoa Speciality DSP. Added Early Expresso Satin Ribbon and the Victoria Lace. Some extra details with Vintage trinkets and Diamonds. I've added the aged elements with Soft Suede Ink.
I'm really happy with how this card's turned out.
