T'was The Night Before Christmas

T'was The Nighty Before Christmas
Morning all and it is morning aprox 3.13am!!in so much pain couldnt sleep so came into my wee craftroom with pain killers and a cuppa.What better way to finish off this card i started before i went to Darlington just never got round to finishing or uploading until now.I didnt make this card for any special challenge.But my wee friend June over at Dezinaworld has a spot light challenge going on. This weeks is to use the colour Bronze .So why not pop over and join in!
This is only the 2nd time ive done anything vintage wise as you can see further down a couple posts made another christmas card using different Santa Image.I have to improve as im not the standard as my too best bloggin friends June & Cheryl thats for sure!They are just so amazing and talented.Take me a long while to get to there standard.
Anyways this creation is i have used a Stampin Up image which i think is from the
"Old Fashioned Christmas set"..The background image is from Magnolia "Silent Night".Have stamped that in Stampin up Close to Cocoa,Creamy Caramel,and also Bronze Versa chalk,other inks used distress Rusty Hinge .The Design Papers are from this years Christmas Release from Kaiser Craft and i cant get enough of them.These i bought from Merly Impressions Dear Santa Collection.You will find most of the Kaiser Design Papers here at Meryl.The Ticket is i believe dream from Tim Holtz pack i have.The flowers Wild Orchard also the leaves which i have bronzed too.Then added Tattered Angels glimmer mist.The String of pearls are from my stash,the others all Kaiser Craft.This beautiful cream vintage Lace i had in my stash.Ther doiley i have also distressed using the same colour inks.

The edges ive used Tim Holtz distress tool .
