Vintage Christmas

Vintage Christmas - It is time for another challenge at One Stop Craft Challenge.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, we are really getting into Christmas at my house. We had a few years where everything was in storage while we were transfered to DC and Dallas, then last year my husband had just returned from Iraq a few days before Christmas and we were traveling to California, for Christmas with our new grandson; so it has been a while since we have decorated for Christmas.

And boy, is my husband making up for lost time. He has pulled crate after crate down from the attic. He is putting Christmas things everywhere! It is very festive! And a little tiring. But at the same time, very pleasant.

This year everyone is coming here, to include my son, who is just back from a tour in Afganistan.

For my card, I bought a new paper pad, just for this challenge of Vintage Christmas, K and Company's Evergreen
The image and the sentiment were in the pad, so a great buy for me. I did add some Stickles to the Sentiment to add so sparkle.

The punch is a MS

I bought the pinecones with the red stimens together. The bow was tied with my Bow Easy. The poinsettia is SB that was shaped with embossing tools and a very soft mat. The greenery is CL.

I hope you liked my card and will join us at One Stop Craft Challenge in our vintage Christmas challenge.
