Festive 48 - Week 34

I was feeling a bit uninspired this week, so I reached for this vintage photo I'd previously printed (it was a freebie from Completely Christmas ). I created a 'frame' round the edge with embossing poweder and added a scrap of patterned paper, some die-cuts and sentiment.

Just to recap, I have challenged myself to make a Christmas card every week , and post it here (to make sure I do it!) . If I do this, by the beginning of December I will have 48 Christmas cards. I have also issued an invitation to anyone who would like to join me by linking up ONE card each week. 

This link up is always 'Any Christmas Card Goes'. 

Thank you to everyone who's joined me so far. I love seeing your cards. 

I'd like to enter:
Completely Christmas  anything goes
Crafty Hazelnuts people matter
Allsorts early Christmas makes 
ABC Christmas quick and easy 
Christmas Stampin anything goes

The embossed frame goes so well with this vintage image and I like the blue and white color scheme for a cold wintery feel.
