Christmas Card Club - Vintage theme

On time today, what I shock, I know.  Lizzie has set this challenge and the theme is Vintage.  I've used a retired set for the carol singers and a set that is in pending at the moment and I'm hoping comes back in our new catalogue;  Watercolour Winter.  My sentiment is from Curly Cute.
 
To give the 'vintage' look I've used neutrals with a splash of cherry cobbler ribbon and using my blender pen and ink in the lid of the pad I've just highlighted the holly berries.  Using daubers you can age your cardstock by gently building up colour 'smudging' around the edges.
 
I'll be back soon to share with you my weekend in The Netherlands with Olivia and my dutch downlines. 
 
Happy day

    That ribbon is such a gorgeous colour and it so suits the ink you put on the berries!
