Vintage Happy Christmas

Well, Hello! How are you? My, my the time sure has flown by lately. We have been extremely busy getting our house ready to put on the market. AND I am getting ready to go on a scrapbooking retreat to Center Hill Lake bright and early Friday morning!! YEA ME!

Here is the other vintage Christmas card I made last week. Used some more of the super fantastic Graphic 45 punch outs. I decided to go for glitter again. This time I ran the two way
glue pen around the edge of the tag and dipped it into some CTMH red glitter. OH it is so pretty.
and broke out some more of the vintage sheet music!! The patterned paper is Basic Grey. The ribbon and button is PTI. I ran a simple stitch with the sewing machine around the edge. The "snowflake" is a flower image from the Cricut Home Decor cartridge. Then I glued that whole die and covered it in Dazzling Diamond glitter from Stampin' UP! I got the basic layout idea from a card by Melissa Phillips in the Cards Magazine.

Okie Dokie kids. Gotta start packing for my scrappy weekend. Have a great night!! Thanks for taking the time to visit me today!

Cheers!
