Snowy Postcard at Winter Wonderland

Good Morning Everyone,
I hope you are all safe and warm. My kids are so excited at the prospect of more snow for the weekend. 
Anyway as it's Friday, we have a brand new challenge starting at Winter Wonderland today and the theme is....
                                                             VINTAGE
Our sponosor this week is  Wild Rose Studio


And the winner will receive two of their beautiful stamps.

I've used 'Snowy Postcard' for toadys card. I found this one quite scary as there's not a promarker in sight!!!
I've stamped the image with distress ink and had a go at the edges too!  I raised the image on foam pads but the photo doesn't show that up! ...Photographer's not that good....need to sack myself!! lol
The papers are Rejoice from Bo Bunny. I added some ribbon and some Marianne Creatables poinsettia's.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Make it Monday - Linky Party
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Christmas in January

Thanks for visiting my little blog today and for all your lovely comments.

I love this card! Isn't it amazing (it is to me anyway) how fabulous cards can be made without a single marker? I rely on my markers so much but this proves they aren't always needed... it's gorgeous!
