Crafts and Me Challenge - Vintage Christmas

 The new topic for the Crafts and Me Challenge is "Vintage Christmas".  I decided to make a middle stepper card - OK to make but not so easy to photograph!!  The backing papers I have used for the card are by Summertime Designs.
The image I have used is from a 6x6 book by Crafty Individuals called "Minatures - People and Places 2" and I thought this cute little girl with her deer was perfect for a Christmas card.  The card has been finished off with a Martha Stewart lattice punch border, die-cut snowflakes/deer and holly which were all gently coloured over with a brown Pan Pastel, ribbon bow, pearl gem, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiments and some gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
