Vintage Christmas


The countdown to Christmas is approaching fast.  so with this in mind the new Challenge Theme over at Sugar Creek Hollow is 'Vintage Christmas' and you can make a card, ornament or gift.
Please pop over for all the details and welcome out Guest Designer for this week Avril Branthwaite.

My choice is a card .  The base layer is embossed with a snowflake stencil then  shaded  with  a dusting of [ blue]  Pans Pastels.
The image is from the  Figgy Pudding  images  set by Gecko Galz.
My boys loved sledging  when it snowed, I won't mention how old they are now,  it was a long................................. time ago.
As usual  my vintage/shabby chic card features  a bit of lace and ribbon, as well as  torn edges on the  layers.
The snowflake die cuts is a Memory Box die.

I will  also be joining the current  Craft Room challenge the theme is  Vintage Christmas.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
