Vintage Christmas

hello friends
hope you are all keeping well. well I have succumbed and made my first Christmas card - well the first one I felt good enough to show you all!!

Using the very popular vintage postcard image - I coloured it in with copics to try and match the background paper. I then matted it onto craft card and then gold mirri card for some sparkle.


I added some glitter glue around the oval section of the image. 

The sentiment is from my Christmas digi stash - can't remember where from though.
I matted this onto more gold mirri card.

The poinsettias in the corner are new - I bought them especially to go with the postcard image. Not sure if I have done them right as you can't see much of the leaves.

What do you think? Does it need anything else? Hubby says no but I'm not sure.

Any advice or tips or suggestions would be most welcome.

hugs until next time
