Vintage Cardinal Card

Hi, last night my MIL of 82 years gave me boxes full of her old crafting goods. She says she has made enough cards and paper crafts in her lifetime and she is done with it  LOL...A lot of things I won't use, and I will pass it on to somebody that will, but included in the box were many old Christmas card fronts.
Knowing some of these cards were very old, and seeing someone's crafting history in front of me got me in the mood to make a vintage card. I had so much fun making this...don't be too harsh on me, I am new to this style LOL....

Isn't that image just gorgeous ?

I embossed it, so it has a shiny, icy effect when you tilt it....

One of my home made flowers...

The bark is from my brother's land, and this card is going to a family member, so I thought that was cool...

I am linking these to the challenges going on at BELLAS CREATIONS and FLYING UNICORN...
Go take a peek, they have so many fun challenges going on this month....
