A Vintage Christmas in July

I did this for the Just Magnolia Challenge which is to make a vintage card and paired it up with the Magnolia Down Under Challenge which is to create a Christmas Card. Well as soon as I saw the challenges I knew it was time to ink up this beautiful image that I received from my sweet friend Tammi... I also decided to try my hand at making a countdown card. So fun..took me all day, but it was tons of fun and now that I made one, definately will do a few more.. Well at least that's what I say you can find the directions here
I heat embossed Liquid Applique around the trim of her coat, and went back to my roots and used my aqua painter to paint the ribbon.

A close up:

Wow! very pretty card Debbie, I love your choice of colors, and it does bring a vintage look to your card. This Silent Night Tilda is one of my favorites, and for some reason I have so much trouble putting her on a card... I am never happy with the result. Your little calendar is such a good idea. Beautiful work.

Debbie, you amazed me quite a bit with the motorcycle-comment, do you really read swedish or was it just a good guess?
