A Vintage Christmas Challenge

While doing my DT commenting last evening, I stumbled upon a beautiful vintage challenge blog called Vintage Cafe Card Challenge and just had to take a peek at the absolutely gorgeous vintage creations!  Of course I immediately had to create something so I could also play along in their current challenge which is a sketch I believe, using this image . . .

. . . isn't it gorgeous!

Here is what I created for their challenge and I can't wait to see more from these talented ladies!

My image is from Crafty Secrets, the design paper is The Paper Studio 'Old World Winter Pack' and my die cut pieces are Cheery Lynn Designs.    I've also stamped a Stamper's Anonymous Holly stamp using Momento 'Bamboo Leaves' ink in the corners on the design paper.  Lime green Stickles was used on the leaves for sparkle and dimension.

A few other challenges I'd like to enter are:
Christmas Card Challenge - Must be Christmas using die cuts
Dream Valley Challenge - Christmas
Great Impressions - Anything Goes
Joanna Sheen Challenge - With Love At Christmas
Mema's Crafts - Anything Goes

That's it for me today!  I really must get busy with baking & fudge making!  Our party is this coming Sunday and I can't be putting things off any longer!  I'll have to 'play' later ... now it's time to get busy!

Have a fabulous day everyone!  Actually ... have a fabulous week!!
Thanks for stopping by and as always . . .
