Vintage Christmas

     We're at the first Friday in November and that means a new challenge over at Emerald City Crafts.  This month I used a beautiful vintage, Christmas image from the "Joyeux Noel" ephemera collection by Linda Simpson Designs.  I love all the winter/Christmas images in this collection (see at the bottom) but this sweet little girl seemed to call out to me to be used first!



    I loved the icy blues combined with the green holly and red berries so carried that through the card design by laying white lace over a strip of blue CS and adhering that to the card front.  I put the image piece on top of that and added the sentiment below it.  

     The dove is die cut (Memory Box) from flocked paper to which I had added the tiniest bit of glitter for some sparkle.

     Challenges:
Crafting from the Heart
Crafty Hazelnut's
Crafty Hazelnut's Extra
Digi Choosday
Merry Monday
Outlawz Festive Friday
Send a Smile 4 Kids
     I hope we're going to see you play along this month.  It's an "Anything Goes" theme as always.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
