Shabby Chic Christmas Card

The challenge for Paper Cupcakes this week was given by Sonia. We were to make a Shabby Chick or Vintage Christmas card. This one made me step outside of my comfort zone. I chose the Welcome Winter image from Paper Cupcakes that will be released next month. I used my Cheery Lynn pastry doily from Happy Scrappy ( Happy Scrappy-, along with some lace and poinsettias, I did the distressing with my distress tool and ink. We would love for you to join in the challenge with us. You can see the other team members cards and find the details at There's Magic in the Air .

The temps dropped last night so it feels more like Christmas time. We may get some snow this week. It can snow, but just not on the roads and sidewalks. I really don't think Mother Nature is going to listen to me so maybe my husband should have the snow shovel handy.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will come back soon.
