VINTAGE CHRISTMAS - SWEET PEA STYLE

HI EVERYONE
I've had such a busy morning and now things have settled down a little I managed to make another Sweet Pea card (I just adore the images of Sweet Peas). I bought the two patterned papers this morning from my favourite store SCRAPPERS WAREHOUSE  and I wasn't sure whether they would go together but I think they have...
I found some really unusual gold metal ribbon and the top from a gold tassel I had hidden away in my craft stash, so I added them to the card too. The swirls I dotted, were from light gold liquid pearls.  I was going to add some flowers but I thought maybe it would a little too much. And for the sentiment I used a cork backed embellishment, which I thought blended in nicely. 
I love the versatility of Sweet Pea stamps because they can be used for any occasion...and colouring them with copics is just a dream...
And now with the card completed, I will add it to the following challenge sites:
IN A SWEET PEA DREAM - all about christmas
PEAR TREE DESIGN - free for all
TUESDAY THROWDOWN - anything goes
DELIGHTFUL SKETCHES - beginning to look like christmas
CRAFT CREATIONS - red, brown and green

I hope you enjoy my card and I will see you all again
very soon :)

So lovely - great oriental style (gorgeous ribbon) - and I think you're right, doesn't need anything else, flowers would probably have been too much...

Thanks for taking part in our first Crafty Purple Frog Challenge!

Hi Lynn, your image is beautiful. Beautifully colored, too. Definitely has a very oriental feel to it. I also think you were right about the flowers. You did it "just right"... : )
I am still having some internet connection problems now, but it's working this morning, so I am taking advantage of it. I will be posting from time to time as my "teen" allows...now that school is back in session, my hands and "my head" are full...take care, hugs! Rae

This is absolutely magnificent! I like how you took a non traditional stamp and made her fit so well into a Christmas Theme.

Thank you for joining us this challenge at "In A Sweet Pea Dream" and I hope to see more of your work in the future.
