Joy!

This card is a wonderful mix of lots of great things! Different stamp sets, embellishments and color went together to create it. I distressed all the edges with chalk ink to give it that worn, well-loved feel. I have to say that I love it:) It is a gate card and the sides swing open to reveal the inside.
This is the inside of the card. If I need to write a little more than the green space allows, I will just add a green panel to the left or right side of the card. I love all the mix-matchy goodness (as Mish would say)!

Anne, this is awesome! Love the paper you used, it's so festive and fun...and the distressing lends that soft, vintage look you were going for just beautifully!! I forget about using chalks to distress sometimes, and I don't always want the distressing to jump right out at you...chalks are a perfect substitute! Thanks for the reminder, girlie :]

Your gatefold is so cute, with the patterned snowflake inside, the vintage tickets and the shimmery flake on the front! Beautiful work, my friend!! So glad you played along with Just Us Girls this week ♥
