September Challenge #5 over at The Crafting Musketeers!

Hey bloggers, card makers and all you crafty lot out there!! the day has come to lanuch the brand new challenge over at the Crafting Musketeers! Septembers challenge is themed "Vintage", ooo now then i thought....vintage, a little out of my comfort zone here!! but it's good to try something....different!, i racked my brains and had no idea what to create... vintage? what do i have thats vintage? UREKA! it came to me, now i have a lovely crafting cd by docrafts, that i'm sure many of you have called "Enchanted" and it has some really "oldy worldy" type of images of  the most fantastic Santa, that i have never used! so i opened up the docrafts programme- docrafts digital designer-( thats is fabulous by the way, it has this reeeeealy cool tool that will create an invatage or pyramage topper out of ANY picture or photo! try it its fab!!!) and decided to print a background and my image in sepia, to try and create an "Old Photo" feel
I distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz ink pad and layered onto choclate brown...ooooh Chocolate! mmmmm.......................
........... ooops SORRY! i got lost in the moment then! now where was I, yes! then wrapped two different shades of brown satin ribbon around tied in a knot. the same for the topper, and on both i curled the edges to age them a little more!, i printed a sentiment, inked and shaped and popped into place, used a Marrianne Lampost Die, added a few pearls, and lots of SNOW!!! using some all purpose clear drying glue in lots of gooey dollops and lashing of white crystal glitter!,And here we have it, "My" Old photo christmas vintage card!
