Vintage Christmas

I don't do vintage. It's just not my thing. Since the Bah Humbug challenge and the One Stitch at a Time challenges are both vintage this week, I decided to give it a try. I combined the vintage theme with the Dare U 2 Digi stamp theme which was to not use any patterned paper. I also thought it went well with the Stamp Something challenge which was to distress something. I sanded the red and green paper and used distress ink around the oval image. The layout is from the Our Creative Corner sketch.

I have to say this is not my favorite card. I think it's more the "no patterned paper" thing that makes me feel like it's really plain.
