Tangled Up in Creativity Challenge

This week Rose (Pink Lemonade) is hosting our blog group's challenge.  Check out her blog, she has a whimsical style that is beautiful when transposed to a card.  

We had to make a project that had a vintage feel.  I love all things vintage, retro, shabby chic.  I just never make anything using those elements.  Probably because my husband likes all things modern.  One day I'll have that frilly girl-cave. 

The background paper is from October Afternoon, "Family Traditions" is from Cosmo Cricket, the paper doily is from Wilton's Cake (cut in quarters)- I had to ink the doily because it was bright white, the Santa image is from a Victorian paper garland, the lace is scrap and the button is by Jenni Bowlin.
Thanks for looking!
