Christmas Past

I've been trying to come up with great cards for the 9 card workshop that don't take too long to do. This one is getting close, the next one I try won't be embossed so the background will be a little lighter and it won't take as long. Other than the background its pretty fast and easy.
I used the new stampin up Christmas Collage for the background on vanilla, the main image is from Bells and Boughs another gorgeous set. I've entered this into the Critter sketch challenge, which is to use only neutral colours BUT no black or white. Moving along with the times challenge is to do a Christmas card. And lastly Secret Crafter Saturday challenge is anything goes, perfect!

Stamps: Stampin up Christmas collage, Bells and boughs
Paper: very vanilla, early espresso
Ink: crumb cake, early espresso, river rock, soft suede, versamark
Other: MS snowflake punch, ribbon, spellbinders scallop oval and label 6, clear embossing powder, ice stickles
