Winter Wonderland DT Christmas Card - Give it the Vintage Look

Good morning to you all out there in the land of blog
Today is Friday and as always this rings in the beginning of the weekend but more importantly the commencement of the new challenge at Winter Wonderland and the beginning of another week off from work whoop whoop

For those of you following the saga of the we cannot see Mr Linky on our 64 bit new machines, well after a few more updates, Sue very kindly let me know she could see him, so I have been to check and yes I can now too

Although we cannot move on with out mentioning all those fabulous creations from such talented people that entered last weeks challenge, they were pretty awesome I can tell you and I enjoyed visiting each and everyone of you.

This week at Winter Wonderland the Challenge is being hosted by our very talented Janet or some of you may know her as Clarky J.  she has chosen this weeks challenge theme as


We are sponsored by Teri
who is offering the random winner 3 fabulous digi images, how cool is that?

So if you fancy having a go pop over here 

I love going vintage but usually end up really messy, but that is what creating is all about isn't it?

Here is my DT card for this week.
The base colour card is hammered green and the papers used are my current favorites which lend themselves so well to vintage which are Papermania the Silent Night collection.  I have used Tim Holtz vintage photo and a make up sponge to stain all the edges.  The little tag's image is one from the internet printed off onto photo paper to give it a sheen. I aged a round doily too to sit the tag on top of.  The ribbon is another current favorite, I have a green version and this deep claret.  I added some pearls large and small in gold from the Hobby House and used my punches to create the flowers in the same papers. Yep my hands are nicely brown now.

Here is the close up of the tag image

He looks like he is having such fun doesn't he and the little greeting rhyme was just perfect.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
A Spoonful of Sugar - whose theme is Winter Wonderland, well he looks like he is having a wonderful time in the snow :)
Crafty Emma's Store (CES) Challenge - with a theme of A Tag

Once again thank you so much for all my wonderful visitors and to those of you who leave such inspirational comments which then enables me to come visit you in return to see your fabulous work also.
