Allsorts Challenge - Guest Designer Card

Here's my card for the second of my weeks as guest designer for the Allsorts Challenge, where Gro has chosen the theme of:


I've not only gone vintage, but have gone festive too...and have used another Stamps Happen stamp that I've had for ages...but never used, as I thought he looked kind of old fashioned. As the stamp is quite large, I've kept the layout quite simple. The papers, sentiment and snowflake are all from the 'Festive' collection pack by My Mind's Eye, and I inked the edges using chalk inkpads for definition, and to make them look a little bit more vintagey.

Make sure you stop by and check out the fabulous creations by the design team.
Thanks for having for the past couple of weeks girls...I've really enjoyed it!

Hi Helen

Your vintage card is absolutely gorgeous. I love it!

The stamp is fantastic too and just perfect for vintage.

Very clever to get a Christmas card out of a challenge - must remember and try this one myself. LOL!!

Thank you for being a guest designer over at Allsorts - your creations were brilliant.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Love Jules xx
