I took advantage of the gorgeous Coffee Bean papers from Eclectic Anthology so I have three cards to share with you! :o) On this card I used 2 papers- one for the poinsettia and one for the panel on the right, My Winterville image is from Stitchy Bear Stamps- creator Lil Diva, Isn't it beautiful! I added Icicle Stickles to the roof tops and shaded the image a bit with a Prisma pencil. 
   Other Supplies: Sweet Stamps-Classy Deer, Spellbinder dies-poinsettia & corner, We R Memory Keepers-Chain ef, Paper Smooches- Joy, gems, Walnut Distress ink

Loving the browns, the Santa card is my favourit

karenlotty said...

I like them all apart from Santa It makes him look a bit eerie I bet I'd change my mind if I saw it in real life

Wow Wow my friend are these all Fabulous!! Love the sepia tones, dps and images on the two gorgeous vintage ones.The Owl one is quite fun too. As always you have outdone yourself :)

Pia S said...

Wow times three! I love them all!
No 1: I love how you used the winter village scene, more as a background rather than as main image. I think I've got this one but haven't been comfortable with coloring it, so I really like your idea.
No 2: I love owls of every shape and size. This is really cute and I love hoy you used the color scheme of the photo.
No 3: this is so pretty! Beautiful vintage design and detailing!
