Congratulations to Elizabeth Neumann for being chosen the featured stamper, FS94. I did enjoy your gallery and notice many things are out for publication. Way to go! I chose this card to case as it was similar to OCC sketch challenge for November 22.
I admit I am partial to this vintage looking Christmas stamp from Tin Can Mail. I inked it with Timless Sepia from Heritage Marvy and slightly embossed with clear ep. Certain parts are colored with Copics. I cut the bottm 1/8th to extend the image and be more in keeping with the OCC sketch. My photo corners are cuttled and nested rectangles that I dry embossed. The tan pennants are actually vintage silver German scrap that I used the back side. I added a piece of double side stiped ribbon and a metallic aqua snowflake brad. The card base is SU bayou blue from '07 and the polka dot paper is MME, also from last year.
So now I think I have about 5 Christmas cards completed...do you think I better get my act together and start producing? Thanks always for your comments, they are most welcome!

Awesome card, Susan!! These are my favorite types of stamps for Christmas, the vintage look just seems to declare this old and wonderful story of His birth the best. So classic and with such character and grace.
