Vintage

Ha ha the wonder of scheduled posts. If you are reading this on the morning of Friday 15th October then my scheduling has worked and I am either at Heathrow or travelling home. This week at Winter Wonderland it's Janet's turn to host the challenge and she wanted the DT to give it a vintage look. For me that usually means old fashioned girls in bonnets but I decided to do something different and use this fab Father Christmas image which I won in some candy ages ago. I didn't colour the image but just added some glitter to the snowflakes. I kept to traditional red and green using Papermania Winter's Tale papers and an MS zigzag punch. The swirls and holly leaves, on which I used a white gel pen, were cut with Sizzix dies. I added some pearls for berries and a strip of Papermania ribbon. It's quite a different card for me but I am really pleased with it and it makes a change to try something different.

I've got the joy of a week's washing when I get home but will catch up with you all as soon as I can.
