Merry Monday Challenge #154

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! My mom's birthday get together went very well yesterday and we had some beautiful weather to go with it! Hard to believe she is 75!

So today we have a new challenge for you over at Merry Monday
Nina is our hostess so let's get to it!

This was a toughie for me since I don't do "vintage" very well. I was unsure what to do! I came across this paper at my last trip to L&L Stamps. It had lots of different vintage style Ole Saint Nick's on it so I picked it up. I ended up cutting this one image out of it and then using the back side of the same paper to layer it on. I used a PSX stamp for my sentiment and added some cherry cobbler sweater trim to finish it off. It looked ok to me! LOL What do you think? Vintage or not?

Merry Monday Challenge #154 Card:

Stamps: PSX Sentiment
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Kaisercraft-Yuletide Collection DSP
Accessories: Antique Brad, Cherry Cobbler Sweater Trim, 2 Sided Tape

Hope you will stop by the Merry Monday Blog to see what the ladies have created! This group of ladies always has some really amazing idea's! Can't wait to see all the vintage style cards in the gallery this week! Hope you'll play along!

Well, that's all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a marvelous Monday!
