Fab 'n' Funky Challenge - A Vintage Christmas

Good morning all,
Today is the start of a new challenge at  
and our hostess this week is Anne Marie and she has chosen
A Vintage Christmas as the theme.

We have two fabulous sponsors this week and they are 
 and 

I've chosen an image from Floppy Latte's Digital Designs called Holly Bough
for my card share with another cas design.

I sat down yesterday to start my card ...house was nice and quiet then it happened....chain saws and mulching machines!  Our neighbour had a crew in to cut down a 40 year old tree!  6 hours of mind-numbing noise.....so much for my peace and quiet  :)  At least he didn't schedule them for a Sunday....that's when he usually cuts his lawn.  Like clockwork, every Sunday in the summer, just as we're sitting down to Sunday dinner!   On the bright side...at least he's maintaining the property :)

Enough of my chatter.....on to the details.  Green mirror cardstock has been used to frame the first layer and gold mirror for the Spellbinders Floral Oval.  Seam binding for the bow.   Gold atyou Spica pen used on the bow and SU square lattice embossing folder for the top layer.

Entering the following challenges
Squigglefly - Traditional Red & green

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs,
Pat K x
