Merry Monday #154


 Hi everyone!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Nina challenges us to create a Vintage Style Christmas card.



This was certainly a challenge for me.  I am not a vintage style cardmaker but I found some awesome patterned paper that was vintagy!  I trimmed it down to fit on my card base and stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink. I added a twine bow to finish off my card.

  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.
I hope you will join us!
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

  12. So glad you did what you did for this card - anything more and you would have lost the impact of that fabulous image.

  15. Hey, I'm with you in the vintage department....DP would be my only hope too...but chances are I wouldn't have even one single sheet! I love the 'distressed' feel of the picture/paper. A bit of twine is all it needed!

    Hope all is going well with the move :)
