Bah! Humbug! Challenge #10 --- Vintage

Those jolly good ladies over at Bah! Humbug! went vintage for this week's challenge.  Well, this gave me the chance to use materials I don't get to use very often.

Where do I start with the materials?  How about from the bottom up:
5 x 7 Card base: Burgundy red card stock
Background:  DP from K&Company Christmas Cheer collection
Cloth Ribbon from my holiday stash (I love old books)
Antique lace
Angel charm from a bag of Christmas goodies
"O Christmas Tree" music score from Dover Publications
Die cut made with Classic Frame from Spellbinders using gold moire metallic paper
A scrap of DP called "Vintage Red" from Daisy D's
Vintage Christmas Tree from Dover Publications
Colored pearl from my stash

But when you put it all together, it is a nice old-fashioned card.  I think I know just who to save it for come December!

I'm glad you stopped by today!  I hope your day is a great one!
