F for Father Christmas

Another card using this fab stamp from Tim Holtz. I have stamped and embossed and inked and distressed it to get this look.  The papers are from Graphic 45, I have had them a while and keep bringing them out , looking at them and putting them away cause I was so reluctant to cut into them lol. I also made the embossed cream holly paper behind the image using a stamp and embossing  it. I added a beautiful red/green ribbon bow and some ticket sentiments.

I have entered this into the following challenges
Fairytale Challenge blog - anything goes
The stampman challenge - anything goes + christmas
Kaboodle Doodles challenge - vintage
 Aly's Sunday challenge - distressed
