 Good Morning Everyone,

The 1st of the month brings a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas and the theme is Vintage Christmas.

For my DT card I have used an image from an old crafting magazine and added gold sheen card for the mats, a gold bow and have distressed the edges of all papers.  A linen impression plate has been used on the deep red paper, but you can't see it on the photo.

I'm afraid the bow will make it a large letter for the post, but that can't be helped.  It does annoy me sometimes how they do it by thickness as well as size. The little gap they slide it through at the p.o. is so small, you can hardly put anything extra on!

I would like to enter:

  3. It is very pretty and I"m with you on that little gadget they use to see if an envelope can fit through it or not. Ugh! [Bunny]

  4. A stunning card Lynne. A beautiful image and love the design. I try to make flat centre bows which can just about about go through the slot. I do have a post office size card, so I can check if it's ok. A pain we could do without. Hugs, Carol S. xx
