Very Vintage Christmas

Another short post today.  My 2nd for the day, actually.   I got some really exciting stamp related news this morning and it really got me in the mood to make something...  So I decided to complete a card for the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge before the challenge ended!  Yippeee!!   I love the vintage look and feel of alot of the sets from Waltzingmouse.  One of my favorites being the Very Vintage Christmas set.  I paired the stamps from the set with BasicGrey's Wassail 6x6 papers and several different inks.   As you can see, I chose to turn the sketch on it's side for my card.  My card is also not the traditional 5.5 x 4.25".  

If you haven't ever taken a peek at Waltzingmouse stamps, you really should.  Claire just released 5 new sets and they are fantastic!  I especially like the Nutcraker Sweet set and I'm scheming on how I'm going to add it to my collection!

Thanks for taking a peek... hope you have a wonderful day (or evening whichever the case!)

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Bazzill red; PTI kraft & vintage cream; BasicGrey Wassail; Ink:  Stampin Up! Riding Hood Red; Ranger Forest Moss & Bundled Sage Distress inks; SU! Riding Hood Red wide ribbon; Stamps:  WM Very Vintage Christmas; punch:  EK Success Bracket punch
