Vintage Season's Greetings

Happy Thursday, peeps!  My card today is for a couple of challenges; Little Red Wagon wants "Yesterday"--anything vintage, and Try Stampin on Tuesday is a sketch:

I turned the sketch on its side in order to accomodate this Tim Holtz image of a horse-drawn sleigh, stamped on some music paper:

The image was stamped in Merry Merlot, then the papers were sponged with Soft Suede to give them a more vintage appearance!  I added a little panel of Baja Breeze to coordinate with this little scrap of DSP I found in my stash:

I colored a silver Glimmer brad with a couple of Blends to try to match the blue hue!  I stamped some greenery on the Merry Merlot base with Versamark ink and added a sentiment from the retired More Merry Messages in Early Espresso:

And on the inside, another sentiment from More Merry Messages, along with a vintage-style Merry Christmas from Kaiser, both sponged for vintage-ness!

I am also going to pop this in a Krafty Chicks, as their challenge is anything stamped!

Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!

So pretty - kind of Currier and Ives, right?
You do vintage so well, LeAnne - for such a 'young chick!'

LeAnne, a great interpretation of our Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch! Love how you stamped your sleigh on music paper that had been "aged"!! "Dashing Through the Snow" came immediately to mind. I like the stamped pattern on the background and how you picked up on the lite blue in the pattern with the panel behind the stamped image. A great card to get the holiday spirit going!! Thank you so much for sharing your creative talents and card with us at TSOT!!! -Donna

Very lovely card! Love me something, anything Tim Holtz. I practice a lot of restraint when he has a new release of products. Thanks for joining us at Krafty Chicks Challenge this past week for our Stamp Act theme :) Hope you join us again soon.
