Vintage Christmas

Good morning everyone & a very Happy Monday to you all!
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at
Ooh La La Creations, where the theme this time is
Here's my card!

I love vintage Christmas cards, so I had a go at this!
The image & papers are from the Passion for Fashion CD rom,
available in the Ooh La La Creations shop here
I did add one other paper, the musical one, which is from
Papermania. I punched a  border on that one using a Tonic, 
Fleur De Lys punch. I did a bit of inking with Vintage Lace distress ink too.
The design of my card is based on this sketch 

I added a ribbon frame to the topper. 
The ribbon & lace are from my stash as is the button,

I haven't done anything to the inside of this card yet, I was
aware of the sky darkening & didn't want to miss the best of the light.
Hope you like it!
