Vintage Country Christmas Girl

This is sort of a mixed medium card.  It seems that is a very popular trend bringing several mediums into card making and I love it!  This card joins machine sewing, ribbon, burlap, fabric, lace, paper, paint and jewels.  For me, there is something so beautiful about adding metallics ~ gold & copper ~ with burlap and lace!

This card was fun to make since I could pull scraps from every direction!  I was in my painting, stamping, and sewing stuff for this card.
