Christmas is Coming

Hello All.
We have had some beautiful weather here in France.  I love it when the air is fresh and the sky is clear and the colours of the leaves are just beautiful.
So todays card is rather festive again.  I love the inspiration that Merry Monday give you each week to help with the Christmas card stash.

This weeks challenge is a vintage/retro theme.

I made a box frame card.  So I then made it into a huge shaker card and added loads of sequins.
The image inside I thought looked very retro, the reindeer reminded me of those sweet little 1950's style ornaments.  The picture is from a set of papers from My Minds Eye called sugar plum which I bought from Hey Little Magpie. 

I then created a shadow effect on the word peace by die cutting it twice and sticking it together slightly off set.

I then added a little jingle bell to the letter P with a piece of twine.

Have a lovely day
