Vintage Card

It is time for a new challenge at Frilly and Funkie and this time Nancy is our hostess and she wants us to make VINTAGE HOLIDAY CARDS.

I created this vintage card for Christmas using three different papers from a Maja Designs paper pack called It's Christmas Time.  A little strip of Venise Lace was inked with some Antique Linen and Pumice Stone Distress Ink and added down the side of the striped paper.  The image is from an Artistic Outpost stamp set called Sleigh Ride and I stamped it with Jet Black Archival Ink.

The poinsettia is made from more Maja Design paper using a die from Marianne Creatables and I added some copper seed beads for the centre (leftover from the days when I was making headpieces for my daughter's synchronized swimming).  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.  Everything has been inked with either Aged Mahogany or Forest Moss Distress Ink.

The bow (yes it is really a bow) is made from copper metallic mesh ribbon by May Arts.  The filigree corner has been re-coloured with some Harvest Copper craft paint from Deco.  The numbers have been cut from Grunge Paper using my Cameo and then painted with the copper craft paint.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
