ABC Christmas Challenge - V is for...

I'm back with another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge...where the theme is:

 'V is for Vintage'

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge:

The prize from Crafty Emma is a £10 voucher to spend in her fabulous store!

The prize from the Ribbon Reel is this delicious bundle of ribbons & lace:

I've used a Lili of the Valley image this's called 'Skating Along'...I think she looks kind of 'old-fashioned' in her furry coat and hat. The papers are a mixture of My Mind's Eye...I distressed all of the edges using 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink, and my distressing tool...then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I cut a few snowflakes using Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs Creatables dies...inking them with more Distress Ink to give them an 'aged' look...then coating them with a generous amount of Glamour Dust, and adding pearls to their centres. The lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For lots more inspiration...please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
