Vintage Christmas

Here is a vintage Christmas card that I made yesterday. This was my first time making a vintage card. So how did I do? The stamp that I used is from Belles n Whistles and is called Baking With Nana. It's hard to see in this photo. But to soften the look of the white cardstock and white flowers I changed the tint of the paper & flowers by adding brown chalk to them.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club: Very Vintage Christmas

Penny's Challenge: Anything Goes
