Traditional Christmas card

I noticed there were several challenges for Christmas cards this week so I set about making this one.
I kept it in the sort of traditional vintage stlye which always brings back childhood memories. I really liked these colours and thought they worked well together. I had one little problem.  After my card dried it looked a bit lumpy underneath the ribbon. Oh well, not enough to spoil the card completely but I know the little lumpy bit is there and I am annoyed with myself for not checking it before it dried.
I have netered this card in many challenges that are listed below. Baby it's cold outside Let it snow Winter Snow Snow people Anything  Christmassy or Winter Red and Green Holiday Winter Choose a season Let it snow Traditional Christmas Vintage Xmas Snow/Snowflakes

But only you you know Shirley, we would have been none the wiser if you'd not told us. But know what you mean, these little things irritate us.

It's a super card anyhow and love the vintage feel and colours.
