Vintage Christmas

This card is something a bit different for me...for a start there's no stamping! I followed the sketch from Get Sketchy (which I flipped)...I've been meaning to join in with their challenges since they launched a few weeks ago...but this is the first time I've managed it. I've gone with the 'Very Vintage Christmas' theme of the Winter Wonderland Challenge with these faded papers and die cut shapes from the 'Festive Frost' paper pack by My Mind's Eye. And cut some additional snowflakes using a Cuttlebug die (I hope this counts as making my own embellishments for the Get Sketchy Challenge?)...so I'm also entering this card for the 'Let it Snow' challenge from the One Stop Craft Challenge.


I must be on a roll...as well as being in the Stamp Something Top 5 yesterday...I saw last night that I'd also made it into the Cupcake Craft Challenge Top 5!
