Anything Goes at Papertake Weekly - Option 'Vintage'

Good afternoon.
Hope your day has got off to a good start.
My morning was spent making some fruit scones for my DH and Jack and then some bread rolls and a plaited loaf for lunch. 
The house smells scrummy yummy!!!!

Anyway the real reason I'm here is to share my DT make for the new theme over at 

and this week it's simply 

with the option of something Vintage

Here's what I did:

and here's how I did it:
Starting with a piece of Centura Pearl card (using the reverse non-pearl side) I stamped the large Hero Arts snowflake image with Perfect Medium and then heat embossed with Stampendous Stamp n Bond before adding Stampendous Multi Crystal Glitter Mix.
I then randomly stamped the mini Holly & Berries stamp from Stampendous 'Christmas Wishes' stamp set using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and inked the edges of the card.

Tim Holtz Sizzix Snowman and Snowflake die cut using chipboard with inked edges in Walnut Stain and then heat embossed Stampendous Frantage encrusted jewels - Shabby White Frantage, Multi Crystal Glitter Mix and Shaved Ice all over - so sparkalicious :o)

Sentiment: Stampendous 'Christmas Wishes'
A few co-ordinating adhesive pearls to finish it off.
