Vintage Christmas

The challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is Vintage Christmas in July. Their sponsor this week is Sassy Cheryl's Digis and I thought I'd go over and check out her shop. I was pleasantly surprised to find this gorgeous vintage image! Way to go, Cheryl! This pretty digi is a steal at $2, I think!
I put my paper-piecing passion into action using My Mind's Eye "Holly Jolly" 6x6 DP Pad for her dress and background layers; the tag is made from another MME scrap, stamped with a Stampin' Up sentiment. The rest of the image is colored with Copics (olive, garnet, pearl white, light camel, dark brown, skin white, flesh). I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the candy cane and inked paper edges with Distress Ink. I have always loved this cranberry colored ribbon and cranberry ink; these red & light green rhinestones remind me of old fashioned Christmas lights. I think I'm getting into the spirit... What a fun challenge; thanks for stopping by!

Now that the wedding is over, you seem to be making up for lost time! You are really on a roll with your cards - love this one. I need to get on my Christmas cards NOW - On Tuesday my SU demonstrator had a Christmas in July event...I'm hoping that will put me in the Christmas card making mood. I have to make mine before I can even think about making any for OWH!
