Advent Calendar for WOC!

Hello my blogging friends! Thank you so much for coming by my blog!  My card today is for the new challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts!  Our theme is an easel card.  This was totally inspired by Debby who made this card here!  Her card is ADORABLE!!! Be sure to have a look!

I tried to go with a bit of a Vintage style for this card, but I stink at that, but had fun trying haha!  Since I used the absolutely gorgeous papers from Maja Design again, I felt I needed to at least try this style!  I went out and found a free clipart of this Santa and made a little advent.

I used jump rings to hold the little numbers that can  be flipped to the back of the card.
Here's a shot of the cute Christmas wooden shapes from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I tie-dyed my Vintage Seam Binding by spritzing with Peeled Paint, Walnut, and Pineneedles Distress Inks, then sprayed with water and set outside to dry.  
I love the gorgeous big natural lace from WOC, isn't it so pretty? The large Poinsettia was also added to my card and the stamens removed.  I spritzed it a bit with Walnut Stain DI just to tone down the brightness of the red.

I sure hope you will join in our challenge this time around.  There are always amazing prizes up for grabs!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for your visit, they make my day!

Hugs, Dena
