I'm dreaming of a Vintage Christmas

I did this card for Priscilla Styles' Midnight Madness #32. She posts a sketch every week and I was so excited to get to play again. (My 2nd time.) Anyway, I used lots of K&Co. paper, including the little Christmas kiddo. The lace Prima stamp was perfect to make some of the diagonal trim and added a different texture than layering another real ribbon on top. (It's my favorite part of this card.) ;)

The circle pulls out and you can use it as an ornament for the tree. Kinda fun! I cut her out carefully with an exacto and then used tiny pop dots to, well make her "pop!"

I decided this one turned out well enough to send to my monthly (one card) swap pal. Hope she likes it.

Holly, I am so excited you came to play this week too :) I just love your blog, your style and of course your vintage flair. I wish you would come play with us all the time :) You design cards after my own heart. Just love the vintage feel you create. Love how you can remove the ornament. I want to be on your monthly swap pal list :) LOL. Thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenge and I would like to take this time to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New year. Enjoy :)
