Sleigh Ride Together With You


I have another entry for Sugar Creek Hollow's challenge to make CHRISTMAS CARDS IN NON-TRADITIONAL COLORS. For my card I am using a vintage digital image that I downloaded from Create with TLC called "Sleigh Ride With You".   I printed this on GKD CS and distressed with Distress Ink Tea Dye . Instead of coloring the image, I just added some highlights to the image coloring with the Tea Dye ink. I placed the image on a mat of paper from Webster's Papers "Waiting for Santa and Sweet Season".  Matched the color in the mat with some aqua blue satin looped ribbon for the bow. Also added some gold metallic ribbon layered with the aqua blue ribbon uder the image.   Stamped a sentiment from Creative Vision "Holiday Sentiments" with the Tea Dye ink. Used kraft CS for the base.
Challenges:
Sugar Creek Holllow: Challenge mentioned above
DYSU Challenge: Use Something Old! It could truly be something old, or just a vintage style or image. Used vintage look.
Bearly Mine: Untraditional Christmas- use no green or no red.on a Christmas card.
Christmas Cards All Year 'Round: Anything goes
