Made a card in bed !

Not feeling 100% today so have been sitting in bed, laptop one side and my crafty goodies the other side . . . . however, it's does have it's downside . . . I can't cut a straight line with or without my guillotine ! ! Oh well, still managed to make a card which is suitable for several challenges:

2S4U - used Kazan's scrummy sketch as my inspiration
La La Land - theme this week is "Getting Punchy" !
Digital Tuesday - Holiday Wishes

So without further a do here is my slightly "wonky" card . . .

Image: Funky Fairy's Papercrafts "Vintage Images"
Punch: SU new punch
Stamps: Polka Doodles snowflakes

Simply adore this image . . can't say why but I really do. Have used my new SU punch to create the fancy edging everywhere. Stamped some snowflakes over my cs and then chalked the edges to try and look "vintage" to match the image. Also stamped some smaller snowflakes onto the image too. Finished with a fancy chipboard I found & tied some ribbon to it ! Looking at my card now, not sure that I like the words down the edge . . . too late now or is it . . . . ?
