  4. Your participating card must be done with basis in the card sketch and be a Christmas card.

Well, I completely forgot to upload this card last week in the midst of all the hubb bubb in my house; 


I love the rich vintage feel of the Riddersholm Design paper!!


And I really love the instant vintage images that coordinate with these papers!!


To keep with the vintage look, I cut white snowflakes out and sponged them with Tea Dye distress ink. Once the ink was dry, I covered the snowflakes with adhesive and dipped them in vintage glass glitter. This snowflake sparkles like it is covered in diamonds. I do love me that glass glitter!!!

I'll post the current sketch and card tomorrow for the Riddersholm Design sketch challenge. The sketch is FABULOUS!
