Jingle Belles Rock ~~ Spirit of Christmas Past

Since the Jingle Belle's challenge has a specific theme and it's one I love but for some reason this year I am struggling with Vintage!!! There is a prize too and if you don't have anything vintage there are two downloads from Lauren's personal stash.  I started with plan "A" but soon went to plan "B" and I like it much better. Lots of layers and fancy stuff it's certainly not CAS or DAB.

One of my favourite Christmas stamps it is called Santa Collage and is from Rubber Stampede I do believe I bought it eons ago on a trip to the U.S. at Target. I guess I had stamped it last year as it was in my box of stamped images, bonus, I did a bit of colouring on it cut with spellbinders ovals, the gold embossed paper was on my table beside the cutter and thought oh that would look good. So three layers of plain ovals, one scalloped and a fancy oval die cut. I embossed the scalloped rectangle with the Textile cuttlebug folder. It was too pretty to put a sentiment on it.

The image and 3 layers is popped up with fun foam and attached to the fancy oval.

Since we are going vintage I used a very vintage sentiment from the Artful stamper it might be older than the Santa Collage.
