Early Vintage Holiday Greetings

Well, I'm still in a Christmas mood, so here's a little ATC that I made. I will use as an ornament for our tree this year. It's for my Retro Cafe Art Design Team piece this week. You really should check out Retro Cafe Art besides the great supplies they are having a contest and a giveaway.

The contest is called "I love Retro Cafe Art Gallery". They teamed up with  100 Proof Press, and they are going to be a guest judge for the contest. Their team will be selecting their favorite to win a $30 100 Proof Press Gift Certificate! How cool is that. They have amazing stamps so this is a great prize!There will also be two $50 Retro Cafe Art Gallery Gift Certificates and two Coffee Break Design goodie packs! Not to mention everyone who enters will get a fabulous Digital Collage Sheet plus we will be adding prizes as we receive entries (see below). And it's so easy to enter. All you have to do is submit art that incorporates at least 1 product from Retro Cafe Art Gallery! You don't even have to purchase it from us. As long as we currently carry it, you are qualified! We have SO many goodies in the shop, you are bound to have something at home. Check out the rules here.

But wait there's more how about a Retro Cafe Art's giveaway of there new shrine kits.Check it out here.

So the vintage Christmas image I used is Debrina Pratt. The 5 pane ATC frame was painted red and edged in gold. It was trimmed with gold German Dresden Foil. The corners have gold snowflake confetti and red sequins topped with a red button. The sparkle accents are rhinestones and red Stickles. The finishing touch was the red ribbon hanger.

Hope you will see some sparkle this week.
take care, gerri
