Whimsy Inspirations Challenge - Rubber Design Team post

Happy Wednesday everyone, and thanks for visting!
This is a scheduled post, so hopefully blogger will behave and the post will go live when it is supposed to!

Today is the Whimsy Stamps Rubber Design Team's turn to share a creation with you for our current Whimsy Stamps Challenge. This month the theme is

"Vintage/Chabby Chic".

 It has been some time since I made a vintage-y card, so I hope I captured the theme here somehow.
I used stamps from the september release - the super cute stamp "Snowflake Bauble", and a sentiment from the set "Holiday Cheer". Behind the sentiment I used the evergreen tree stamp from the set "Lovely as a Tree" by SU.
The image has been colored with copic markers and cut out using my very sharp cutterbee scissors. I added some  chunky glass glitter (retired from SU) around the sentiment,and the trim in the middle of card. The edges were distressed. The holly and berries die was perfect to use on the side, although I did only use 2 leaves of the diecut. I added a button with some twine in place of the berries.

Here is a complete list:
Stamps: Snowflake Bauble, Holiday Cheer (both Whimsy Stamps), Lovely as a Tree (SU)
Papers: Winter Blues (Whimsy Stamps), Card stock by SU and Neenah
Tools: holly and berries die (whimsy), scallop border punch (SU)
Embellishments: chunky glass glitter (SU), stickles glitter, lace
The image was colored with copic markers

Here is another view.
