A Vintage Monday

The challenge at Merry Monday this week is to create
a vintage style Christmas card. I found this challenge to be
more difficult than I thought it would be. I used to do vintage all
the time but lately it seems I mostly do CAS. I've had this
challenge on my mind all week and finally got a chance this
morning to play along.

I love the weekly challenges at Merry Monday. They're
ALWAYS inspiring. I really love the ones that take me out of my 
comfort zone - this one did just that. It was fun to go back and
play with the vintage style again.

all from Stampin' Up! unless noted
card stock: very vanilla, crumb cake, naturals ivory
dsp: this and that epic day
stamp sets: Winter Post, Christmas Messages
