Joyful Tidings – by Deb Saaranen

$3.95 Flat Rate US shipping through December (discounted international shipping).

Today Deb shares a Christmas card with a neutral vintage overall theme and I love it! To achieve her look she used coordinating sheets of paper from the Tidings paper collection by Authentique, covered a chipboard ornament and die cut her leaves and sentiment. And that just about did it! Take a look:
