Vintage Christmas

Hello! I've been having a lot of fun playing with my dies here of late! I didn't set out to make a Christmas card originally but when my bird cage looked like it was missing something i added some holly. I finished it of with a bow and some pearls and ended up with a vintage style card! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
