Crimbo Crackers Challenge 39 - Vintage

It's time for another Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme for the fortnight is:


I'm sponsored by the fab Cardmakers Delights who are offering the challenge winner 5 sets of toppers from the store!  If you've not heard of Cardmakers Delights before, just click on the banner and have a wander through their store!

I was sent a very generous selection of Christmas themed toppers in preperation for the challenge and I've used one on my card:

The papers are a mixture from my stash - the 'falling dots' one is Prima - North Country 6x6 and the main background is Pink Paislee - Family Matters.  I've layered the topper - its printed onto to thick card and quite a perfect shape for using - onto some brown card from my stash and then used an old kraft folder to layer everything else onto.

The stitching is all faux and the snowflake charm is from The Bead and Button Company and the ribbon and embroidery thread are from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge - for more details, pop over to Crimbo Crackers!
