Are you dreaming of a brown christmas?!!!

Morning folks! Well I'm only dreaming of a brown Christmas if that means its filled with a tonne of chocolate lol, I am expecting to put on weight over christmas!
I decided to go all brown and vintagey for this Christmas card today. We have a new challenge for you over at Stampin for the weekend and it is "all stitched up" so we want to see some stitches on your creations real or faux.
I have used Bo Bunny papers on my card and this most adorable Tilda stamp that comes free with the current issue of Magnolia ink!!! Yes she is free and she is sooooo cute. She can be used for any occasion but I think she suits a Christmas card just fine!
I have also used lace, jute, seam binding and flowers from WOC, with some flowers also from Kort & Godt. My frame is a nesties die, my snowflakes Mariannes dies and my tag a memory box die. My sentiment is from a Hanglar set and I have used a tonne of vintage photo ink and picket fence crackle paint.
My adorable image has been stamped in brown ink rather than black for a softer effect and coloured with prisma pencils and I have added some magnolia stamped snowflakes to the outer of the image. I have machine stitched all my papers and this image.
Do check out what the rest of the team have made for this challenge and we have 2 prizes up for grabs this time from Both Simon Says stamp and LOTV!
I am entering this into catch the bug anything goes, OSAAT anything goes, Crafty pad anything goes, Quirky crafts layer it up and let it snow and Fab and funky bingo (vintage, twine, distressing)
Thanks for coming by my blog again folks, I am happily getting back into my crafting right now!
Big hugs
