The Play Date Cafe Challege - PDCC09

Busy ... Busy ... Busy ...
just like everyone else during this last week prior to Christmas but I wanted to play along in The Play Date Cafe Challenge being hosted by my good friend Julie Campbell (A Vintage Chic). Check out this color combination!! Isn't it awesome!!! This is one that I would have never put together but it is so rich & elegant ... I'm glad Julie thought to use it!!

I still have several cards to make and get into the mail tomorrow so I decided to help myself out by printing wonderful vintage photos from the Clearly Vintage blog and used one of those images for today's challenge card. If you love vintage like I do ... please check out Cora's blog. And, she is so generous to share these beauties with all of us.

I have used SU Very Vanilla for the base card and icicles. The designer paper is from a holiday DCWV 12x12 pack. I have used metallic royal blue & gold to matt this sweet image and gold stickles to border. Though difficult to see in the photo (this is much prettier IRL), I have used a glue pen and fine glitter along the icicles and snow in the sky of the image. My only embellishment is the gold metallic elastic cording for my bow.

Like I said ... I'm trying to make quick cards since I'm running so far behind and these adorable images are perfect!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say hello! I hope you are enjoying time with friends and family during this holiday season ... making wonderful holiday memories and maybe you can share a few with us!! Happy Holidays everyone!!
