Christmas Morning Wish

Wow! We are up to Tag #5 over at the Twelve Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style!  Isn't Linda's tag absolutely dreamy?  I continue to make cards rather than tags and thus my card for the challenge is shown above.  I just received several Sissix die cuts in an order yesterday morning from Linda's Funkie Junkie Boutique, sponsor for this challenge, which aided me greatly in creating my card.  For this fifth challenge, I emulated, as best I could, Linda's card with the Vintage Photo Distress Ink, snowflakes, music, tickets, a flower, and filigree metal embellishments.  This card was a bit of a struggle for me.  I was excited to find "The First Noel" sheet music in our piano bench, which I photo copied onto card stock.  Unfortunately, when I tried to add Distress Ink, the ink from the printer smeared, even when heat set, so I switched to a Stampsmith image of music.  The filigree elements are hardware from a opera-length black velvet cape I wore once to White Tie event!  This is my first time using the Tattered Flowers die cut. I think I am going to like making flowers with it a lot!  I'll be back tomorrow with a post for the new Fashionable Stamping Champion.  I hope you will stop back tomorrow evening!  Have a great weekend.  Yvonne

Beautiful piece of work, Yvonne! Love that you stuck with the vintage colors and the embossed Merry Christmas looks wonderful with the Vintage Photo sponging. Your flower and snowflake are so pretty too.
Somebody is going to get a really gorgeous Christmas card!
