Man of the Hour

Hello everyone!
  Just a quick post today to show you my last Christmas card for the year!  This is another fabulous image from my PrintMaster Platinum DVD called "Man of the Hour".  Like this card, it was originally a B&W image that I changed to a sepia tone... so no coloring was involved!  Perfect for finishing up last minute cards!  I used the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser tool and Walnut Distress Ink to give it that Vintage feel.  The postage stamp sentiments/die cut is from Whimsy Stamps and the candy cane die is from QuicKutz.  Hand dyed my seam binding with the same walnut ink and then added my button to finish it up!  
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
Hugs, Tammy
