Vintage challenge - midway reminder

Hello! For a change we have a nice sunny day here again. I love it! But it's still getting cold - we are only having around 20 degrees Celsius here. And last week I was still running around in a t-shirt. Quick change, don't you think so? 

We are in the middle of a challenge at Crafty ribbons challenge blog and if you haven't already, we would love it if you came and played with us. The theme of our challenge is "vintage". The DT is now split into 2 groups/teams - one team will post their cards when the challenge goes live and the other group will post their cards in the midway reminder. I'm in the second group. :) So here's the card I made for this challenge ...

This is another card where I didn't use and DPs, just dark red and white cardstock. :) I stamped over the white cardstock with different snowflake stamps from Studio G, Stampabilities and Recollections, with Faded text background stamp from Stampabilities and border stamps from Hobbycraft. One one piece (behind the sentiment) of the white cardstock I also used snowflake embossing folder and inked the snowflake with my gold(ish) ink pad. The main image is a gorgeous vintage stamp from Recollections. I embossed it with Queen's gold embossing powder from Ranger. The big snowflake is a Marianne design die and the small snowflakes are made with my craft punch. In the center of the snowflakes I added crystals from my stash. The corner is a Spellbinders die. I also used a white doily, which I inked with my ink pad to give it a bit more vintage look. The ribbon is from Crafty ribbons and you can find it here.

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Simon says stamp: Emboss it
Christmas crafting: Traditional Christmas colours (I used gold and red)
Lothian crafts: Use Marianne design dies (I used Marianne design snowflake die)
Stamp and create: Anything goes
CLP challenge: Sketch
Mark's finest papers a Heinrich company: Favourite technique (I am currently addicted to embossing and I just loooooove stamping too - in case you couldn't tell lol)
