Vintage Christmas

This should be my last Christmas card for this year.
Apart from my DT work, I've decided to stop making Christmas cards, put away some stamps I didn't manage to use and take some time for family, house cleaning and daily chores before Christmas.

When I saw this Stampavie stamp I decided it would have been a perfect addition to my collection. And when I inked it, I decided to keep its Victorian atmosphere using soft traditional colors.
Anyway, this is my card:

I've found a very old ivory paper with snowflakes (I'm sorry I don't even remember where I bought it) and added a few touches: a grey cardstock panel and stripe behind the image, a glittered snowflake and a touch of glitter on the snow.
I love its atmosphere which reminds me of Christmas past, Dicken's novels and London in the late 1800s.

Well, being my last Christmas card I suppose these will be the last Challenges I'm entering for this year:

Crafty Mess Challenge # 23: Vintage Christmas
DYSU Challenge # 102: Christmas 

I'll surely be back for some new DT cards but for now, Happy Christmas!
