My first for this year!

Christmas card - that is!
I have used 2 images from my Tim Holtz set, stamped in Adirondack Expresso. It goes well with the pale cream card. I distressed the edges a little.
I have used a piece of very old lace, and threaded it with some recycled gold ribbon. The holly is a punch and I added 3 red beads to finish.
Sorry the scan is a little crooked!.
Challenges ;
A Blog Named Hero - reuse, recycle
Paper Crafting Journey - Vintage/distressed
Southern Girls - beginning with F (Father Christmas)
Opus Gluei - The start of something big (THe first if my Christmas card makes)

Have a great week
