I used lots of vintage, earthy ribbon/twine on this card, first and foremost the gorgeous 1.5" Taupe Silk ribbon which I fashioned into that big, chunky bow. I tied on some rusty jingle bells with a length Natural Jute/Twine. In addition, I tacked on a strip of 1.5" Grosgrain with Ivory Striped ribbon. And to all that love vintage papers, I have discovered a new paper company and I have to tell you that I am 100% in LOVE! This line of paper is called It's Christmas Time and it's by Maja Design, based in Sweden. Have a lookie at their site, and if you love vintage, you will love this paper! I also added some antique lace and a Quinn Flourish die to highlight the Paper Sweeties' sentiment. The main verse and the banner sentiment are both from the Christmas Blessings set.
