One Stop Craft Challenge

Morning all, it's time for a new challenge over at One Stop Craft Challenge and this week our theme is 

Vintage Christmas

Oh this was a challenge for me as I had no idea what I was going to do as it's not really my style (if I actually have one) so I called on my good friend Lorraine who is an expert on Vintagey looking cards, she's so good at it.

Strangely, I picked the papers before the image! This LotV girlie was stamped with DI before coloured her in with DI's too. Another departure for me. I'm pretty pleased with the results.  Lorraine subscribes to Becca Feeken at Amazing Paper Grace's Kits and the Nesties are new (not out till next year that she got in one of those kits)
