Vintage Christmas at It's My Time to Craft

Hi everybody

Tuesday has rolled round again, and it is time for a new Challenge at  My Time to Craft,  and this week our thme is Vintage Christmas.  This is my vintage Christmas in dark Red and Cream.  Please do pop across to the challenge blog to have a look at all the lovely work from the other teamies.

For my card I have used a dark red base and layered with toning paper, which I have used my distresser on,.  I have layered some other papers on top with a cream background and music in red, and on top of that a Weather Clock from Tim Holtz.  I cannot remember where I got the pciture of Father Christmas from - it was a download.  I have added cream lace, toning ribbon, and cherry blossom in similar colours as well.  The sentiment is LOTV which I have distressed to within an inch of its life.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Crafty Bloggers Network - Shades of Winter
Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
Trulu Madly Crafty - Images of Christmas
The Ribbon Reel - Anything Goes
