be jolly (MFW Schabby Chic/ Vintage)

okay, post #2 for today... this time, it's for the vintage/ shabby chic Moxie Fab World Holiday Challenge. and personally, this card took me the longest to make, but it's my favorite out of the three... maybe it's because it took so long, hehe :D

i've never submitted cards for challenges over at MFW, so posting 3 cards is completely new for me :D but i had a lot of fun checking out the gallery of cards, you really should too.
anyway, i used the "be jolly" stamp from The Paper Company, the snowflake cut from the Accents Cricut cartridge, some $1 lace from Jo-Ann's, DCWV patterned paper (The Christmas Value Pack), some K&CO holiday mat paper (can't really see it), kraft/ cream/ pink/ light pink card stock, brown ink from Impress, and some lovely pink rhinestones. i also used a Martha Stewart border punch.
i know i didn't have a vintage image, but i really thought the distressing and paper choices make this card "shabby chic." what do you think? you like?

oh, and here's something else that's new for me... i even decorated the inside and back of the card (back shown here) for some extra fabulous-ness :D

thanks for looking, and don't forget to check out Heidi's blog too for some sweetness!

I like this one. It's got a lot going on, and several points of interest. Not your typical holiday card, but it's very YOU, and sometimes different is just right. Love the jewels and whatnot. :)
