Vintage Christmas

It's time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and the theme for the next fortnight is Vintage.

I decided to make a Christmas card and used an image from the Ooh La La Creations Christmas Presence CD.  Pop over to the Ooh La La Creations Shop and take a look in the gallery - you could also pop a copy into your basket, it's free P&P and the service is brilliant.

I used the Pyramid decoupage image called Fancy Christmas, the papers are from the same Artwork Set.  The border is an EK Success punch and the corner is a Die-namics die cut.  I have inked all of the edges and added some ribbon, pearls and a sentiment from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Divas by Design Challenge - Christmas in July
Aud Sentiments Challenge 111 - Christmas In July
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Extra July - Anything Christmas
Sparkles Monthly Challenge 58 - Christmas in July
The Stamping Boutique Challenge - Christmas in July
My Sheri Crafts Challenge 138 - Christmas in July
The Corrosive Challenge 204 - Christmas in July
Lexi's Creations Challenge 121 - Christmas in July

Make sure you pop over to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Vintage challenge.

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
