In my neverending quest to create Christmas cards, I chose to use the MOJO Monday Sketch 152 to attempt another one. This is for this weeks sketch challenge. When I saw it, I immediately thought ribbon and lace was what was needed.
I really like the vintage and vintage type cards that I've seen. I just have a lot of trouble reproducing that kind of card. I decided to try for a vintage look on this one. Not sure that is what I accomplished, though. I think the coloring (to practice with my copics) is a little too bright. All in all though, it's the best effort to date ;-) I tried to make the main image look a little older by sponging on some desert sand. The snowmen have a little smooch spritz for shimmer.
