A xmas card

Hello out there!! ;)
Yes - I think it's time to make some Christmas cards! But I think it's too early to buy Christmas chocolates in the store!! It's a time for everything, right?!? But I don't want to start the Christmas NOW! I just have to be a little prepared...
Today it's actually snowing here in North of Norway - it seems like the winter is here! I know the kids love it ;)
Well, back to my card!
I'm no good at Vintage cards. But I *love* them for Christmas (and all year long too...) and I just had to try making a vintage Christmas card. I'm not quite pleased with the result, but it's about my 3rd vintage project, and when I think about it, I have to say that I like it... *lol* ;)
The card is for the following challenges:

* CLP Challenge Blog - Sketch # 30
* Vintageudfordring - Use Gesso or paint on your project (I've been using acrylic color - stamping it with bubbleplastic)

Christmas wishes

The inside

"It isn't presents or food that's the best. It isn't the mulled wine that's warming the most. But the things that we cannot touch - the thought of the ones we love. Merry Christmas to you and yours" (Sorry about my translation... *lol*

Papers: 3ndy papir - Julerose/Julekvartett, Bazill Vanilla, Kraftcarton

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today! And I would love it if you left me a comment, telling me what you think about my card. I need lots of tips about my vintage projects because it totally new to me!
Wish you a fantastic week!
