Its Not Blue !

I just had a notion that I wanted to make a vintage card, I'm not particularly pleased with my Christmas cards this year so thought I'd have a break and just play. Another old fashioned Santa from Stampendous., I just stamped him in red as he never looks as effective when I try to colour him, various bits of scrap papers left over from other cards, the fabulous Sue Wilson Ivy die which I love, memory box snowflake and holly dies and the Happy Christmas die which was a freebie last year. Found a few challenges to enter

Penny Black and More  - Anything Christmas
Ink On My Fingers        - Vintage
Fantasy Stampers          -  Traditional Christmas
Allsorts                         -   At Least Three die cuts.
