It's beginning to look a lot like...

I know it is probably too early to think about Christmas, but as someone who is always late sending out cards, I thought I may as well start getting in the holiday spirit. Now that I am back into cardmaking, I want to start a nice stash of Season's Greetings! This card was created using the delightful sketch on the challenge site PaperTake Weekly. Using cool greens,cream and gold and peppermint reds, this vintage styled card is entered in the Colour Create challenge. I printed the image, which is from an antique postcard I found in a dusty old store in Traverse City, MI, about three years ago, onto teastained muslin. The fabric is from my stash, and I distressed the golden paper that is matting the picture with my edger.


Ingredients
Papers:Webster's Pages, Flair Designs, Crate Paper
Embellishments: Vintage postcard image, fabric, muslin
Inks: Ranger Distress ink

This is so gorgeous! I just love your style so much! Those papers are yummy too! Your cupcake card from the other day really made me smile-I read it in google reader and thought I'd commented but obviously hadn't! Your kiddies are adorable! Looks like they had lots of fun licking the bowl! Love Rowena
