12 Months of Christmas Link Up Challenge # 6 Home for the Holidays/Vintage Christmas Midway Post 6/15/2015

Hello, Today at 12 Months of Christmas our challenge is Home for the Holidays/Vintage Christmas. Lunagirl is our sponsor this month. I am using "Victorian Christmas Collage" by Lunagirl. This sheet of Victorian images has  17 images on it. You can find this set here Victorian Christmas Collage. You can find the Lunagirl store here
  • Do you remember Christmas time when you were little?  All of us come from different eras and hopefully we all have some fond memories of Christmases past.  The look of ornaments, decorations, wrapping paper and cards have definitely undergone changes in their appearances throughout the years.  Have you stayed traditional to your roots or have you moved on with the times?  Regardless of your style, this month we want to see a card that reflects the Christmases of old.

    In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your card has a vintage theme.  So, break out those classic images, grungy papers and anything else that will give your card a vintage look.  If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

    Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $15.00 gift card from Lunagirl. 

The pearls are by Want 2 scrap. They are a deep green.

The ivory lace is by Prima.

The burgundy pearls are by Bo Bunny.

The borders were made using a Martha Stewart Border punch.

The flowers and leaves are mulberry paper and are by Wild Orchid Crafts. The 2 tone roses are ivory. I inked them with a rose ink pad by Studio g.

The pearls are glasses beads by Designs by Me. I glued the string on with Glossy Accents and let it dry. I then cut the clear thread that held them together. 

I sprayed the card with Iridescent Spray & Sparkle varnish by Crafters Companion.

Papers used are by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles- "Grungy Christmas"digital paper set- burgundy, gold, and green, and "12 Months of Christmas" digital paper set- Holly & Berries. You can find these sets here
