Merry Christmas Vintage Style

Hello~

I have a Christmas card to share today!


The challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week is to use the colors: Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla!  I got as close to the colors as I could. I did have the Real Red and Very Vanilla.  Everything you see was created from scraps YES AGAIN! I have a very large scrap pile, so I try and work with those pieces if possible!  


I started with Very Vanilla card base embossed my Real Red strip and adhered to my card front. I cut a doily from my green patterned paper, and then cut ribbon banner to adhere on top of my hand cut doily.  


I adhered my Christmas Vintage focal point finishing off with a felt snowflake embellishment, fussy bow, button and stamped tag that was created with a DeNami Design tree stamp from the Winter Fun Petit Fours collection.


I am also happy to play along at Really Reasonable Ribbons Christmas Theme Challenge.


I hope you have a great weekend!
~Tammy~

As for the formatting issues, you probably need to make changes in the HTML view. There's likely a "hidden" code that is preventing you making the change in the Compose view.
