We're doing "Vintage" this week at Mo's!

Wheet whoo!! It's Thursday already . . . and time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! This week, my talented friend and DT sistah, Cathy is hostess!! And she's chosen one of my all-time fave themes . . .

And, of course, since I'm in full Christmas mode these days, well what can I say? Here's a little "vintage" Christmas card!
This fabulous Mo Manning image is called "Ragged Santa" . . . and you can find him HERE in Mo's online store. I just love him . . . and think he's perfect for this week's "vintage" theme! What do you think? Here's a closer look . . .
I feel as though many of my cards lately have been rather "under-embellished" . . . and that's sooooo not like me!! But . . . ta da . . . NOT THIS ONE! hehe!! Here's a bit of a side view . . .
My Card Recipe:
Image printed on Cryogen metallic white cardstock
Cherry Cobbler cardstock: Stampin' Up
Kraft cardstock, DPs, & most embellies: my stash
Corner die: Joy Crafts
Fence die: Magnolia
Ivy & circle dies: Memory Box
Tag die: Magnolia
Martha Stewart edge punch
Flowers, lace, & wooden deer : Wild Orchid Crafts
Inside sentiment stamp: My stash
All edges inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink pad
Aged Ivory Frantage
Liquid Applique (for fur trim)
Copic & Shin Han markers

A peek at the inside . . . 
And, finally, the "artsy" view . . .
I've decided to enter this card into Deep Ocean Challenge #62 "Christmas is 'Round the Corner

Okey dokey, 'darlins!! I ho-ho-hope you liked my little vintage Santa card!!
