Christmas Vintage

Hi there,
Well, I'm working on vintage and what better way to "flex my muscles" than entering in a vintage challenge. Made this one for the challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow which is "vintage Christmas"...

OK, DT for Sugar Creek and everyone else- please let me know what you think, what I can improve, not do, etc.... used cutout images from the gorgeous Graphic 45 Design Paper "Christmas Past" collection

have yet to find a small ticket template so made my own using the SU corner punch

Ok, ready for the reviews (-:   really want to do vintage well

hugs,
supplies:
cs - MFP's Aged Cranberry, Black
ink - Memento black, Ranger's Aged Mahogany
sentiment - from SU (dont know name of set)
embellishments - trim from MFP, stash ribbon, ornament from $1 bin at Dollar Store, pearl pen - black

Love it! I don't think you need to change a thing either.

I am very impressed and wouldn't change a thing either. I love the image (especially since it is the same as mine - great minds think alike - LOL) and your background paper is fabulous. The lace, homemade ticket and other embellishments are perfect. Great job and thanks for joining us at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Big Hugs!

Linda,
I love your vintage card. Everyone is right don't change anything.
Here is a link to a company who might have the ticket die you are looking for. They have several other nice dies as well.

Love your vintage card...perfect elements and great use of them in the card. Love how you used the DP. Since I am new to trying vintage I am not the one to critique your card, but I like what I see. I think it is right on!
