Good Morning, I hope that you are all well. Today is the start of a new ABC Christmas Challenge but before I tell you all about it, I must say that you do have a lot of gorgeous unused stash. We had over 200 entries for our last challenge and it was awesome to visit your blogs.
As of yesterday there were exactly two months until the big day. Have you started making your cards yet. No, well don't worry, there is still time and this new challenge is the perfect reason to get started. Our theme this time around is
V is for Vintage
I know some of you are probably groaning now (I know that I did) but I had a lot of fun with this card and I love the way that it turned out so I am sure that you will too. On top of that we have some great sponsors this week.
Crafty Emma's Store who is offering a £10 voucher to spend in the store.
What is more vintage than Victorian especially at Christmas so for my card I have chosen to work with
Lil Victorian Christmas Lylah from Tickled Pink Stamps. I have coloured her up in gorgeous shades of olive and red to match the papers from the MME Lost and Found Christmas Collection as the papers have a wonderful vintage quality about them.
The rest of the card is all about the details. I have cut out the image and matted it on this music sheet paper which I have distressed and inked before stitching around it. If you look close you will see part of a lace doily peeking out from behind. The scroll work along the bottom was punched with a Martha Stewart punch on top of which I have layered lots of flowers in rich Victorian Christmas colours and you will notice that the olive flowers have been given a spritz of glimmer mist for some shimmer.
This card will be entered into the following challenges;
