Vintage Christmas

Hope you're well and are enjoying the weekend! I'm trying to catch up with the Christmas card making with a vintage style try. I need some more practise, but hey, there's a lot time for it yet!

I used:
Papermania ornament stamp heat embossed with golden powder
Penny Black Pine stamp and Pine Needles Distress ink
Retired text stamp
MS border punch
Liquid Pearls

I would like to enter:

Christmas Card Challenge: Evergreen Trees (Pine)

I'm having a cold, so tonight we'll enjoy a take out and then a film and a cuppa with honey from a bee keeper friend.

Love and hugs
