Magical Monday - Vintage or Shabby Chic X-mas Card

Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.netfor the random drawing prize for participating in last weeks challenge is: Julie Price

Julie please send me your choice of 2 images and your e-mail address that you would like them forwarded to at magicintheair@att.net and I will get them out to you. You can find a full listing of all the images here. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

This week Sonia Rivera brings us our challenge. She would love to see us create a Vintage or Shabby Chic Christmas Card/Project.

Shabby Chic
Layers of softness... Use ribbon and lace, a time-worn look achieved by inking, pearls, glitter and other such embellishments

Soft, Distressed elements and.. use buttons, crochet trim, *flowers made out of old dress patterns or from old book.

Here are some links for some home made flowers: One, Two, Three.

You do not need to use one of our digital images to play along, but of course we would love to see a Paper Cupcakes image used. Please note: Everyone that uses a Paper Cupcake's image will be entered into the drawing twice to win.

Since this is not my normal monthly give away and you would like to use a Paper Cupcake image you can find "Gingerbread Boy" in my store here for just a $1.00 this week only until Sunday evening, December 4th. I am doing this so if you want to use a Paper Cupcake's image that might be fun to work with for this particular challenge, you have one. Or you can always pick your own out at the Paper Cupcake's store which you can find HERE.

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates and follows this weeks challenge and links their work back here will get to pick two images of their choice from my store Paper Cupcakes.

Now for the oh so talented...
