Vintage Bling and please VOTE!

Thanks to everyone for all your get well wishes - am feeling much better than I was - just need to eject Mr Hackin Coff from the house (he has definitely overstayed his welcome) and then can REALLY start to feel good!

Before I share todays make, please would you go here  and vote for me?
I've been selected in the top 10 for the people's choice winner again (with my Wedding Card which you can see properly here ) - and I keep coming close but never quite make it!!! There's some strong competition again though so I am not expecting the outcome of this vote to be any different from the last - but if you could pop across and vote that would be great (oh and ask all your mates to vote too.. I have no shame!!!!!!!!!)

Right - on to today.

Another Christmas offering - this time a bit more fussy than the previous CAS ones. The image is printed onto Cotton Fabric. I used to use this a lot for printing vintage images as it gives a lovely textured 'soft' feel, and when you cut it, the edges take on a 'distressed' look without any effort! Found a small piece left in the drawer so used it!

The backing card has sparkly dots on it but it doesn't show up very well in the pic. Lots of bling on this one, white satin ribbon with blingy oval buckle, crystal flourishes and some crystal gems in the middle of the snowflakes.
The sentiment was PC generated.

Challenges -
Try It On Tuesday - Memories
Use Your Stuff - Christmas Theme
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Winter Holiday
That Craft Place - Bingo and I chose Gems, Sentiment and Ribbon
Whoopsi Daisy - Christmas Card

Thanks for stopping by - and if you've voted for me - an extra special THANK YOU!! x
