Reminder Card for the Paradise of Stamps - Edwardian Christmas

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all well.

I am just popping in to share a reminder card for the current 'Vintage' challenge at the 

I stamped up an LOTV stamp called 'Edwardian Christmas' with timber brown Stazon ink onto Artistico extra white watercolour paper and coloured the image with distress reinkers. I have sprinkled some glamour dust onto the fur muff.

The winter fun border die on the left hand side has been cut twice to give dimension in brown card and I've painted the edges with white gesso. 

The holly leaves  have been cut from Joy Crafts die and the twinkling stars from an Yvonne Creations die in brown card and also edged with white gesso.

Just peeping out from the right hand side of the image is a die cut stitched border from a Poppy Stamps die called pretty stitches. The circular wreath on the bottom left hand side has been cut from a Rosy Dot die.

The flowers are a mixture of my own and some are from the Ribbon Girl, links are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product. The lace can also be purhased from the Ribbon Girl.

Finally, I've draped some pearl string around the image, this can be bought from the Ribbon Girl.The jingle bells attached to the centre of the ribbon bow are also available at the Ribbon Girl.

DI List:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, 
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress and Hat: Gathered Twigs, Black Soot
Red Bow: Aged Mahogany, Barn Door, Black Soot
Holly: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters

Well that's it from me today.

Thank you for popping in.
