Festive Christmas Card Blog Hop

Here is another creation of mine for the twice per month Christmas Card blog Hop I'm a part of here and on The Robins Nest blog.
To make this card, I simply used what I had on hand.
I attached a piece of decorative paper to some scrap card stock and then added a matching color to the bottom. For the bottom piece, I scratched it up a bit with some rough sandpaper and then dabbed it with a bit of white chalk ink for a vintage effect. Next I colored a piece of white scrap paper with a gold leafing pen, set to dry while I used the same pen for the cards edges and a piece of vintage clip art. I mounted the clip art to the paper with foam tape and added some holly and berry punchies I had laying around. I used a starburst punch on the gold painted paper and scattered those pieces about till I was content. Some tiara stickles to add bling, on the starburst, holly/berries and vintage image. lastl;y I added my stamped greeting.
Done! What do you think?
Please leave me a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Then please hop along to Debra Buckland. :)
