Christmas and Beyond

Although this isn't my usual style, I had fun making this collage Christmas card. Used odds and ends of scraps, so that I could enter it Pixie's Snippets challenge. The style also works for the Simon Says Monday Challenge.  I spray painted a scrap of the vintage doily with bronze paint and cut a banner from a snippet of antique sheet music inherited from my husband's grandmother, who had been a choir director in the 1930s and 40s. I embossed the sentiment (an unmounted wood image, so I don't know the company) in white. Used a few other odds and ends of paper to finish the card.

Am almost finished making Christmas cards and moving on to winter themed cards. Love this sweet snowman image, but this is another stamp that I had pulled off on a wooden block many years ago so am not sure of the company.
