WOC #11 - Victorian/Old Fashion Christmas

Hello~  I hope all my U.S. Friends had a lovely Thanksgiving...I know we sure did at my house....well besides hubby being extremely busy with work.  I got to spend the day with my Grandparents and the night with my other Grandparents so that was a wonderful day!  As I said the other day my Mom and I had our last craft show of the season on Saturday and it went very well...especially for our first time at this show. 

I'm sending a special thank you to all of you who answered my computer question last week!  I have purchased a Clickfree and it should be here soon!  I can't wait to get it!!! :)

Now onto crafty's Monday...and you know what that's Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge day!  Yippy!  This week our challenge for you is to create a Victorian or Old Fashion Christmas creation.  
 I've tried to add a Victorian twist to my card...but I think it came out more Old Fashioned so I guess that works!  LOL!  When I sat down to create my card I immediately knew I wanted to use one of my SCACD Carmen Medlin stamps...I absolutely love the "realness" in thse images and Winter Walk is the one that I thought would be perfect for this card.  Papers are from Bo Bunny Noel Collection.  I love the vintage feel that the big snowflake gives....this actually was a floral pick that I got at JoAnn's the other day.   Pearls in the upper right hand corner were made with my Viva Decor Gold Pearl Pen (these lovelies are on sale at SCACD right now...great time to stock up!)
 Winter Walk was colored with Copics.  I've used my SB Labels 14 to cut her out....and while the image was still in the nestie I took my Ranger Inkssentials blending tool and Brilliance Gold ink and blended the gold around the image.  Love the antiqueness this adds to the image.  Plus the ink gives a lovely subtle shimmer.
 Flowers are from the fabulous Wild Orchid Crafts!  I've used 40mm Hybrid Tea Rose, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, red stamens, and 8mm semi-open roses.  All flowers have been shimmered with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and then sparkalized with Gold Stickles.

Now make sure you head over to the WOC Challenge Blog to see the fabulous creations the other girls have created!

Well it's definitely Victorian in book - the colours & the image with the amazing detail. Love that holly border matted onto the burgundy & the image is perfect for this. Glad the Craft Fiar went well for both of you.
