CCAYR Mid-month reminder

Hello crafty people. I have another Vintage inspired Christmas card to share today as it's mid way through the Vintage challenge at



I used a vintage collage style paper as the starting point for this card and it just evolved using various die cut layers in burgundy and gold and edged with stardust stickles. The (wonky..ooops!!) JOY rub on was a lucky find and I just added a sumptuous burgundy satin ribbon to finish off. A far cry from my usual efforts but it was quite nice to try something different, albeit a struggle!!

I am playing at these Challenges

ABC Christmas - 'J' for joy
Cuttlebug Mania - Ribbon
Crafty Boots - Ribbon or Lace

Thank you for dropping to visit me today, you are always welcome xx

It's good to be pushed out of our comfort zone sometimes love the layering and the lush burgundy bow really 'ties' it all together. Sorry about that!
