Vintage Christmas Card

Here is a quick and simple vintage holiday card.  I crumpled up some Graphic 45 paper, the sewed it to an ivory card stock panel.  Before I adhered the panel I distress the edges with ink.  Sometimes I take the ink pad directly onto the paper, but this time I used a sponge, I have a little more control that way.  The sentiment was stamped in rich cocoa Memento ink.  When I first went to put the tag on, it didn't seem right.  Maybe because the paper is crumpled.  So I popped the tag up with foam tape.  The red twine is from Martha Stewart.
I want to say a big thank you, to everyone who has wished me a congratulations.  The outpouring of support really has been overwhelming!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
"Merry Christmas"
