Vintage Christmas with the Winter Wonderland Challenge DT

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
today brings us to the next challenge at the 


with the theme this week chosen by little old me of

Vintage Christmas

but before I move on I would like to thank the ladies at
Gingersnap Creations
for selecting me as a featured artist
in their
Shared Moments Challenge
thank you ladies :)

So here is my little bit of inspiration for this weeks challenge, but do not forget to hop over to see the other fabulous inspirational pieces from the rest of the talented design team
This is another of my enlarged cards, to facilitate the punch around the page holly punch by Martha Stewart.  All the edges on this creation have been distressed with Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink.  The sentiment is from Creative Impressions, I got mine from Grimsby Crafts.  
the papers from stash as is the doily and the image is from the good old world wide web, I think, cannot remember now think I have coughed that much that my brains have gone and if it were not for the Bridget Jones knickers well lets not go there.............................. The flowers on this creation are from Wild Orchid the bling from the Hobby House and the pretty lace is from Grimsby Crafts.
