  4. Excellent job combining the vintage Santa image with those lovely designer papers! I love the pearl and crystal snowflake embellishments, too.
    Thank you for sharing your card with us this week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. Unfortunately, because you've included several colors that are not part of our color challenge, we will not be able to consider your card for our weekly Top Five Honors. But I'm glad you linked your card anyway so we can oooooh and aaaaah over it. :)

  5. This is gorgeous, love that pretty new die

  8. Very beautiful and vintage-y! Took me a while to find your kraft paper, but it's there and I love all the other papers you used. I also really like how you left the sentiment panel inside the frame. It is a really neat look. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
