V is for Vintage

This weeks ABC Christmas challenge is V is for vintage. I'm not too good at vintage cards and so I hope this one fits the bill. I have used some lovely papers which I have been saving up for ages- hard to cut into them. The stamp is an Elyzbells one that I have used a few times recently. I have been very good this year with the ABC Christmas challenges and haven't missed a challenge yet- I'm very impressed with myself since it is nearly Christmas and there aren't many more letters of the alphabet left to do!
I have followed the sketch from this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and will also enter the card into this weeks Passion for Promarkers (children) and Digidoodle Shops Best (anything goes) challenges.

I have papers like that too. They are so pretty, you just don't want to cut them at all.
I love your three wisemen. And, your colors are perfect. I love how you cut the images out and have the brown circle behind them. Nice touch. Love your flowers too. Thanks for joining us.
