Vintage Christmas - SSS187

I continue to be in the mood to make Christmas cards.

I found some gorgeous pattern paper at Michael's that is so wonderfully vintage looking and when I saw the sketch for this week

I immediately thought about using the both the Vintage Postcard and Poinsettia sets from SNSS.

I love the combination of the two for making an elegant vintage card for Christmas. I stacked my stamped postcard on top of a piece of pattern paper and tied them together with some cotton twine. I used some of the scraps to make faux washi tape. The photo is a little blurry. With a lack of sunlight when I am actually home, it is hard to take good pictures. Sigh! I hope you like my card.

You should jump over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog and see what all the other Sugar Babies did with the sketch this week. And join us by sharing what you've made with the sketch.

Ooooh, the vintage look of this image and the papers! These two sets work perfectly together, and I love how you tied it all up with the twine! Fabulous! Hugs!

Oh, so pretty Melissa. The vintage postcard looks fabulous with the gorgeous poinsettia. Also like the yarn and pretty ribbon. Great design.
