Vintage Christmas

The Challenge on Cheery Lynn this week is Vintage. The card is 5x7 with the white silk paper cut 4.75x6.75 inches and trimmed in gold pen.  I ran the white silk  paper through with the poinsettia background plate and used tea dye distressed ink around the edge also.  I used the lace Christmas tree and distressed it over the angel wing in green. I edged the tree in gold pen also.   The top border is lace deco lights and I added some gems to bling it up.  I used the mini fanciful flourish and holly leaves in green and gold with a few wreath strips around the leaves.  The poinsettia is an old one from my stash and I can't wait to get the poinsettia strip from Cheery Lynn, it's much prettier.  I added some bling to finish the card.
