Vintage christmas card

I love vintage christmas images and made this card using the couple from Joanna Sheens 'Past Times' stamps and a Christmas tree from Elusive images. I can't believe how quickly my Christmas card box is filling up thanks to some fab challenges this year.

The tree is stamped on to pearlescent card and painted with twinkling h20's, I then inked around the edges with yellow and orange inks to give the card a bit of a glow and added some fb gems as baubles. The couple were also stamped and painted with h20s and then cut out. The blue bp is from Redhotbed and I cut a cirle out using my cricut, edged with gold pentouch pen and mounted it with foam tape sticking the man underneath the circle and the lady on top. Finished off with a sentiment from Redhotbed and some gold star gems from my stash.
This card is for 2 challenges:
Bah Humbug which is 'Trees' and
Fab's Big Christmas Challenge which is to make a vintage card with a round focal point
Thanks for looking
