Vintage Children's Christmas Card

Good afternoon to you all out there in blog land.  As I mentioned in my last post, I was heavily into the distressing and was creating a vintage piece. 
 So with stained hands today as forgot to put my gloves on to finish this. Here is another Christmas Card for my continually growing pile.  
This I have made using a mat gold card, cream card and some lovely papers that I cannot remember the name of.  The lace from a local department store the old style lace not the clean white stuff.  Pearls from stash.  Flowers from Hobby Craft this time, leaves from a punch I bought from Running With Scissors and the image from the WWW. I used my white gel pen to create the faux stitching around the image.  Aren't those children just adorable.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Whose theme is Very Vintage

Bah Humbug - Whose theme is A Child's Christmas

and finally

ABC Christmas Challenge - Whose theme is Mistletoe or Wine and stitching real or faux (they are also half way through the alphabet so are celebrating with a blog hop)

Anyway must rush as got to go to the fishing shop and buy some bits for Matt who is at a fishing match tomorrow, must keep him sweet so I can craft again tomorrow :)

Hope you are looking after yourselves and once again thank you for the lovely comments, especially the funny pirate ones recently from my last post.

Happy Crafting one and all

Hugs Kate xx
