Hi - thanks for visiting!
Just popping by with a vintage Christmas card.  I intended to make a tag, but somehow it has ended up as a card ! Has that ever happened to you?!

The lovely Ignacio from Nicecrane Designs very kindly sent me some beautiful vintage images to play with, and as it's almost Christmas (oh yes it is!), I started with this fab. picture.

Other materials used -
SU Cherry Cobbler  and Crumb Cake cardstock
SU Linen thread
Tiny sentiments - HOTP
Background paper - Craftwork Cards.
Distress inks, 
Tiny star punch 
Paper ribbler 
Machine stitching, and lace.

Hugs ~

What a lovely image! I can well understand that she needed to be on a card rather than a tag tho'

Fabulous creation, love the layout and the colours, the lace just adds that final touch but for the love of me I can not see where you have used the heart punch, I must be blind!!
