Phew, how fast time flies, doesn't it? Can you believe we are already in the middle of September?! Christmas will be here before we know it. Not that I'm complaining though, because I love Christmas. ;) And  this year I am even a little bit more organized - I started making Christmas cards early. And today I'm going to show you one of them. It's the one that I made for the new challenge at Crafty ribbons blog. Our theme this forthnight is vintage, so I created a vintage Christmas card.

What do you think? Do you like it? I didn't use any DPs on this card, I created them myself. :P For the background I used white cardstock over which I stamped with various snowflake stamps - from Recollections, Stampabilities and G studio. And for the center piece of paper I used a white cardstock over which I stamped with Stampabilities Faded text background stamp. For the main image I used the gorgeous Christmas tree stamp from Recollections and I embossed it with Queen's gold embossing powder from Ranger. Around the image I stamped with snowflake stamps. In the corners of he image I used small gold stars and on them I glued small crystals. I used ribbons from Crafty ribbons.

Oh right, before I go I need to tell you what is the prize for the winner of this challenge. Ali and Tony are generously giving the lucky winner the fabby vintage rose ribbon. Isn't it beautiful?!

I hope you'll join our vintage challenge. Hugs! xx
