Sparkly and vintage Christmas

It was Lizzie's turn to set the challenge for today's Christmas card for the Christmas gang and she supplied this lovely sketch for us to work with:

All my papers were from my offcuts box, so this is for Jules' crafty snippet challenge 42 and also for ABC Christmas: U for unused stash because I've used some lace that I bought quite a while ago from a market stall, a piece of very sparkly glittery ribbon and the lovely candlelabra stamp by Papermania, which I inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver. The sparkle is for Christmas stampin all year long: spark-ka-lay!

I love Christmas cards made with a combination of blue and silver, so I'm linking this for Stamp dreams 104: favourite colour combination.

This is also for:

Winter wonderland: a vintage Christmas
Alota 69: Christmas
Phindy's Friday 78: blue Christmas
Fab's big Christmas: something shiny and/or snowflakes
Crafty ribbons 4: ribbon and lace
Bunny Zoe 17: lace it up

It's my turn to set the next challenge for the Christmas gang (to make a card to be shown on Sunday 6 November) and this is my challenge:

'I'm asking you to use either something recycled or something you got as a freebie (with a magazine, or in a swap or RAK etc) - you can, of course, use other materials as well.'

If anyone wants to know more about the Christmas gang and join in with us, please get in touch with one of us - there is a list on my sidebar.
