Not at all, but that is the theme for the card I have made today. I needed a fairly straightforward design as I am a bit close to the challenge deadline so I chose to print out an image from the Crafters' Companion CD, Vintage Christmas. It was a decoupage sheet but I didn't feel she needed to be layered. She is so sweet just as she is.
I matted her onto some torn card from the colour core'dinations Chocolate Box stack. For the base card I chose white and one of the glimmer mist screens, the smaller swirl. I used sponge to dab on ink from two Distress ink pads, walnut dye and tumbled glass, moving the screen around so the whole card was covered. I used the same two ink pads to distress around the edges of the card. I mounted the image at an angle and across the base I glued some off-white lace topped with red organza ribbon and a bow. A couple of flowers from my stash, lightly coloured and joined with a flower brad, finished it off.
I am entering this card in:
