Vintage Christmas at Eclectic Ellapu

Good morning folks, well its an exciting day for me  today as I'm making my debut over on Eclectic Ellapu as one of the pink ladies oooh how exciting! Its been a bit of a squeeze fitting in some crafting over the past few weeks but as the pink teams theme is 'Vintage Christmas' and its one of my all time favourite themes I managed to escape to my craft room and have a play :-). We've got lots of new teamies starting today so if you've got a minute do pop over and have peek at their gorgeous artwork!

I've  used some of my favourite Christmas papers, die cuts and sentiments, all from Christmas Post by Craftwork Cards, all distressed with a little vintage photo distress ink. The focal image is a stamp by Crafty Individuals, watercoloured with distress inks. I've added some white cosmic shimmer glue and glamour dust to the focal image and red stickles to the flowers. I've added a couple of red berries and some sparkly red wired bead trim from my stash to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A crafty mess: anything goes
A Vintage journey: Birds of a feather
Deep Ocean: shabby chic
Milk Coffee: lots of embellishments
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers: vintage
Treasured Times: anything goes

Well its time for me to scoot off to work, don't you hate these dark mornings. Its dark when I leave work too and I'm starting to feel like a bat lol.
Thanks so much for visiting today,
Claire ss
