Vintage Christmas


The challenge over at Festive Friday is to create a vintage Christmas card.  I had to check in with Moe as I wasn't quite sure if this passed for vintage, but Moe gave me the nod of approval due to the bow on my card!  For the poinsettia leaves on the card base, I took a Spica pen and outlined the leaves to make them pop out a bit more on the red.  In real life, it adds a bit of shimmer to the finished product!

I'm loving these Festive Friday challenges as they are helping me get a few more cards done before the craziness of November and December arrive.  And yes, I say this every time I play along!
