ABC Christmas Challenge V is for….

Well can you believe another 2 weeks has passed
And we have another fun ABC Christmas challenge for you!
But first!
Wowzers you did us proud last on the last Challenge U for Unused Stash we had 209 entries!!
tehehhee I am thinking you all have lots of lovely stash you have not used until now? so well done for cracking all those things open and getting those un inked stamps mucky! you did a brilliant job! and we had an awesome time looking and commenting on your entries!!

So then to this weeks Challenge
V is for Vintage this challenge is way out of my comfort zone and I had to do a lot of browsing to find inspiration.

I hope that my card inspires you…. and also my team members have some AWESOME projects that should also help!
Our sponsors this time are:
Some exciting news we have a NEW sponsor at ABC Christmas challenge and they are The Ribbon Reel
and we also have
Soooo here is my card, I have used papers from the Bo Bunny Father Christmas Collection
IMG_4007 (800x728)
and then I used some of the papers to cut my Marianne poinsettia die and added a brad for the centre after distressing it, I have 2 ribbons made into a big blow and I have stickled the edge of the image layer and curled the top right corner, the sleigh charm I wanted to age too so I have used alcohol inks and then burnished it.
Simple…. haha!! Oh I also added some gold gelly roll pen to the poinsettia here is a closer look at the poinsettia
