V is for Vintage

Happy Thanksgiving! I am headed out the door for Thanksgiving dinner. My brussel sprouts and squash casserole is ready to go. I wanted to quickly post my V card.


This card was a real thought process. I started thinking days ago about my V card. I was having a tough time coming up with anything. In talking with my DH he suggested vino. And I had a design in mind with wine. But in the middle of the night I woke up and into my mind popped Virgin Mary. So as I was perusing my files, I ran into several images that had vintage Santas. So I changed my mind again and this card was born. Several days ago Beccy posted a tutorial for coloring on pre-colored images, so I tried that with this image and I really liked the way it turned out. The image is from Create with TLC. The sentiment is from Bird's Cards. The kraft card stock is embossed with the Holly Swirls embossing folder. The plaid paper is my favorite from American Craft. The border punch is from Martha Stewart. The embellishment is from Beccy's Place called Holly Branch. I inked the edges of the image with tea dye distress ink for a more vintage look. I am entering these challenges:
Time to go. Dinner calls. Hope you have a wonderful celebration and a relaxing weekend.

Your thought process definitely paid off Donna, your card is wonderful. I love the vintage style image, it reminds me of the little books we read in first and second grade... many years ago! The simple sentiment is lovely and I like the embossing in the background. Great job.
Cheers,
Beccy
