Jingle Belles 19

Our challenge this week was "Spirit of Christmas Past"  which translates to "vintage".  I had printed off this vintage image from some time ago and had it pinned to the wall in the stamp castle.  Luckily I remembered it was there and trimmed it up to use for the challenge this week. 

I used a More Mustard card base with a layer of Cherry Cobbler under the BasicGrey Wassail dsp.  The trimmed print was given a Chantilly lace ruffle and some Champagne glass glitter.  The Cherry Cobbler Shapeability label was stamped with "Merry Christmas" from Four the Holidays and embossed with gold EP.  I used Always Artichoke seam binding for the bows.

I have to tell you that HWNSNBP was impressed with this one - must be the glitter or something.   He said it looks like an old-fashioned card and even though the terminology wasn't quite right, I knew I hit the mark with vintage.

So let's go see the other vintage creations.  Click here.
