Vintage Christmas Greetings

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope the first half of your week has gone well!  Mine's been busy and the second half is only going to get busier!  Before I head out for the rest of the day, I'm popping in to share another Christmas card I made.  This one is for a couple of challenges, which is a great way to make sure they get done!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Riding Hood Red and the patterned papers are from the Authentique Festive 6x6 pad.  The vintage image is Winter Snow Fashion from Create With TLC.  This was one of the colored images that Paulette shared as part of the recent Winter Club.    I added a bunch of large and small snowflakes that I cut with Marianne Designs Craftables dies.  The little sentiment tag is from the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium 8x8 pad.  I added a Wild Orchid Crafts White Lily, 2 Red Roses and 2 Ivory Roses.  I used Shabby White Fran-Tage all over the front of the card.  A white silk bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the vintage image and the flowers:

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to be around later this evening when I get home.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Wild Orchid Challenge #90 (snowflakes)
Crafts-Too Challenge You #5 (Main theme: Vintage Christmas; Twist 2: at least three colors)
Charisma Cardz #45 (vintage)

Have a great day and see you soon!
