Is it Vintage or Shabby Chic?

Finally after giving myself a push this morning I managed to get some mojo to make a card, I had a lot of help from my "helper" picture to the right. Not sure why for the first crafting of the new year I would pick a die that has at least 15 tiny circles, bells and stripes but I persevered and "got 'er done". 

The Christmas snippit box took quite a beating today, The patterned paper I saw in there it was holly and berries, I cut it to size and of course it is double sided and wow I liked the other side, woohoo. The red left over die cut was also in my scrap box and I was building my card, I was very excited because I don't make vintage/shabby chic or build much. The Jester Stocking was also cut from scraps and all the foliage and bow were in the Ferrero Rocher box. 

Close up of the focal point.

Finished the inside with an ancient Stampabilities sentiment and of course some scraps from the snippits from the front. 

I'm entering this in:

Jingle Belles Rock Challenge ~~ Thank You Santa (it was me)

Snippits Playgound ~~ challenge 419

Thanks for stopping by today and have a fabulous week.

Lovely die-cutting to make this pretty, festive card.

Thanks for giving me a push to make me go higher on the Playground swings earlier.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
