A Vintage Christmas

I never got the chance to photo my cards I made on Friday and yesterday Sis rang last minute to invite me over for the day so that meant an early start.
So this morning I had to wait for daylight to photo this card even so I still had to have light on luckily this card worked out fine.
I've used the sketch from Sketch and Stash, just in time too, new sketch is tomorrow. Can't believe I've used gold on this card not always keen on gold but it worked beautifully with the vintage Christmas papers from Authentique
I printed the gorgeous image from Mo onto white thin cardstock so I blended Antique Linen round the edges to take the white starkness away. MAWTT have a vintage challenge reckon this ticks that box.
Not sure why but when I see this image it reminds of the story of the Little Match Girl

Whoops too late for Sketch and Stash!

The little Match Girl was the first that came to my mind as well when seeing this image. You made a gorgeous card with it. You always know perfectly to match colors and the details are great again. Love the corner that you've used.
