Vintage Merry Christmas

Good morning! Today I'm playing along with Sparkle's 2010 Christmas Card Challenge #5. Her challenge is to use any kind of buttons on your card. I also used Julee's latest Mojo Monday sketch #119. I pulled out one of neglected stamp sets from Waltzingmouse that I just love ~ does that ever happen to you? ~ you're so excited about a particular stamp set, so you order it, patiently wait for it to arrive, then somehow you don't have a chance to ink it up?!

Anywho, I stamped the largest snowflake from Very Vintage Christmas using Vintage Cream ink onto Vintage Cream cardstock, then I embossed it again with my Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. The sentiment is also from the same set. Finally, I inked the edges and added some stitching to finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
