MMM - Week 23 - Christmas

The theme this month at MMM is CHRISTMAS, chosen by Suzi B.
And the  first week's Christmas challenge   is


I have to say that this would be my choice for any Christmas card as I love all the vintage images.
Anyway this is my interpretation of the challenge but do go and check out the DT inspiration as their cards are beautiful.

 I covered my base card with paper from my stash  and stamped randomly around the edges with a spruce stamp and dots from Stamps by Judith. The main image is a La Blanche stamp, stamped with memento and coloured with PM's. I added some glitter to the snow but it's not showing up in poor light! I wrapped green ribbon around the card, matted the image onto gold mirri and attached to the base card with foam strip. I punched some holly out from the BPand added some glitter to the berries. The snowflake is a die from Whimsy Stamps which I sponged with bundled Sage. The sentiment is a digi but I don't know where from and I sponged that as well and added a gold edge with a krylon pen.
Thanks for visiting and you know I love to read your comments:)

Hi Val,
I'm working late again tonight.
Love your vintage Christmas card...vintage is my favourite for Christmas, too. Your image looks fab! Especially with the inked edges. I love the papers you used and how you've overlaid your holly across your image. A really gorgeous Christmas card:)
