Papertake Weekly Peggy Loves Vintage ;-)

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge Dawny P has made us this lovely sketch to follow AND as the challenge is being sponsored by Peggy Loves Vintage all the DT (and me) were given a fab image to use too !! I can't wait to see what images the DT got to use :-)

I have never used pre coloured images before and I must admit I wasn't sure about it at first, also I am not very confident at the vintage look so it was quite a challenge for me !!!

I printed the image 3 times and decoupaged Santa, his lantern and his sleigh bells :-) The papers are from a Funky Fairys Papercrafts Lets Get Traditional Christmas set

I just added glitter and fancy die cut corners and that was it :-) I did try to add ribbon and gems and things but nothing looked right so I just left it simple :-)

Thanks for looking,, please leave a comment so I know you've dropped by ;-)
