Moving Along With The Times (DT Card) - Challenge 121 - Vintage

Morning everyone! Hope everyone is well this Thursday morning! Today is my first DT Card for

Val is our hostess this week and she has chosen the fabulous theme of


I love using old photographs for vintage cards and so I had a look on the internet and found this gorgeous image at Karen's Whimsy. I thought it was perfect for an old-fashioned Christmas Card.

The Paper is Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather' and Flower, Holly and Berries are from Wild Orchid Crafts. It's the first time I've used the berries and have to say they look gorgeous !!!

Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat. Little flower and pearl are from stash. It's quite a simple card, but with the photo and the flowers, I don't think it needs many bellies. So resisted filling every corner! Why do I find that so hard!

Wild Orchid Challenge this week has the theme 'Christmas Fun' and I think this couple look like they are having fun? Well the lady does !!! ;-))

Anyway, I hope you like my card and do pop over to MAWTT website for more details of the Challenge and to see the rest of the DT's wonderful projects!

We are sponsored this week by Crafty Emma's Store who are kindly offering a fab prize of a £10.00 Voucher to spend in store (not including p & p)

Gracias, Sue, por tu comentario, es la primeera vez que estoy participando, lo peor que llevo es el idioma que gracias a San Google puedo enterarme de algo aunque su traduccion es muy mala. spero participar seguido para poder así tener mis tarjetas para Navidad, creo que es bueno porque nos obligamos un poquito.
Tu blog me encanta y tus trabajos son muy creativos y perfectos, espero aprender visitandote.
