Stop me if you think you've seen this one before ... misquote The Smiths.

This is probably my favourite vintage Christmas image and I have used it several times.  This time I used it with torn and distressed patterned paper scraps, ribbon, a brad and a big snowflake. I made the snowflake as part of an online course in designing your own electronic cutting files.
