The winners names will be announced ONE WEEK FROM TODAY

I've got the full blog list at the end of my post :D

So now to share my inspirations with you.  This image is called Christmas Present.
I've coloured it with Copics, cut it out with a Spellbinders die and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz antique linen.

The tiny stars you can see are left overs from when I've been cutting with Spellbinder dies and I've saved them up to use here.

Here's a close up of the resin corner I've used - you can find these at Live & Love Crafts.  you can also see some vintage seam binding 

This is the other end of the seam biding here I've hand tied a double bow.  Added to this is a double star charm which you can find from The Ribbon Girl.  The roses you can find at Wild Orchid Crafts.

The design papers are all from the Vintage Frost basics - Maja Designs.  All have been distressed with Tim Holtz antique linen.  The final bits to mention are some cream organza ribbon and some pearl self adhesive gems.

So there you have my completed vintage style Christmas card.

Don't forget to leave a comment on all the blogs :D
