Vintage Christmas Postcard

Hello friends ~  I'm popping in with a Christmas card I made using the colors from Color Throwdown Challenge.  

This line from Prima called Candy Cane Lane just happens to have the colors they're looking for: Pink, Magenta & Green.  Not to mention that the entire collection is as cute as can be!

I cut one of the papers with this sweet girl dressed in her vintage best, using Sizzix Snail Mail die and added some post card stamping and a die cut poinsettia, which I distressed to add to the vintage look.  The leaves are cut using an older Spellbinders Poinsettia die. 

The pretty pink banner is from the coordinating ephemera pack.  The poinsettia makes this card eligible for the Peace On Earth challenge, using their mood board for further inspiration.

My card will be entered into the following challenges:
Color Throwdown ~ Color Challenge using Pink, Magenta & Green

Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Here's a list of products I used today:

Thanks for stopping by!

She is just the sweetest little thing! This is a darling vintage card, Birgit. The postage die adds so much to the vintage look and I like the striped paper peeking out from the background. Delightful card!
