MAWTT #119 - Vintage

Hi girls. Welcome and thanks for calling in to my wee blog today. I hope all is going well for you and that you are having a great time visiting all your favourite blogs. I hope you like mine enough to come back again. Winter is definitely not far away here because the temperature is dropping and with the change in the clocks just days away I'm looking forward to dark nights in my craftroom. 
Anyway on to today's card that I am entering into the latest Moving Along With the Times Challenge where the theme is "Vintage". I have chosen to go for a traditional vintage style Christmas card for this one and have inked up an old church scene from Stampin Up and combined it with a Stampin Up sentiment. They are both stamped in sepia ink and are stamped on to a vanilla card. I have created snowflakes using a combination os Martha Stewart and EK Success punches. The corner was cut using a Cuttlebug die and the gems, ribbon, glitter and lace are from my stash. I think this card is a bit understated for me but I loved making it.
I hope you like it and would love to read any comments you might have time to leave for me - I love reading your views.
Have a great day and enjoy your crafting. Above all stay safe and healthy.
