IDIC card making challenge Vintage Christmas

I actually lost my card for last weeks challenge before I had a chance to take a photo so I failed completely! This week I made sure I took the photograph and put it on the IDIC photo uploading page (albeit at the last minute!) before it all went wrong again!

Over at I Did It Creations this week the challenge is Vintage Christmas and I have used a digi stamp from the talented Hope Jacare, she has a unique style that is perfectly suited to the vintage theme. The stamp is 'Christmas Pudding' which sums up Christmas in so many ways for me, as we always have homemade Christmas Pudding and also indulge in 'Stir Up Sunday' (see this post). Christmas Puddings have been traditional in England for many centuries so may have featured in many a Vintage Christmas!

I made this first card and tried to keep it simple with watercolour pens (I am not very good at using these as you can see!), vintage sheet music, kraft paper, gold ribbon and an old wooden button.
I loved the effect so much I made another slightly larger card as I printed out a bigger image and again kept it simple, with no bow or button. The image comes with the matching sentiment so it does make a really easy Christmas card which suits me as I have hardly made any!!!
Please come over to IDIC and join in with the challenge this week thanks xxx
