Vintage Christmas!!!

If there was only me to please.......I would make cards like this all the time. I just love vintage images.
Here I have taken inspiration from the very subtle colouring in the image and used Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers. I overstamped the paper on the circle with my favourite Christmas script stamp from Rubber Stampede and the 25 Dec stamp is from a TandaStamps set.
The base paper has been screwed up and inked lightly using a Versamagic ink in a soft blue. This has been attached to the card blank and then overlaid with a piece of foiled vellum then I stitched through all the layers.
I wanted to make the image a little more dimensional so added the ribbon where the little angels have a fabric wrap and then decorated that with crystals.
Found the perfect colours of Prima flowers in my stash so added those along with more crystals.
Hope you like it.
