Live & Love Crafts "It's a Wonderful World"

This week at Live and Love Crafts the theme for the ladies was from the song "It's a Wonderful World".  I chose to focus on those actual words as my theme and how wonderful a world it can be during Christmas.  Every one is in such a great mood!! 

I used a gorgeous image from the Christmas Time vintage images, covered the image using Champagne Versamark and 4 coats of UTEE then cracked it.  In real life it has a bit of a shimmer behind it because of the Champagne Versamark.

A piece of me wanted to cover this with embellishments buuuuut I just love those laces so much that I tried to keep them visible.  Not easy to refrain I might add.  LOL!!  I also added the "Joyful Noel" sentiment from the Maja "It's Christmas Time" papers in the Melissa Frances frame from LLC.

I used the Magnolia Poinsettia doohickey and distressed all edges with cocoa Momento ink and then glittered them up with platinum Stickles.  I also added the platinum Stickles to a lot of the layers as well.  I covered much of the card using shabby white frantage, including the Magnolia Doohickey Swirl.

Lastly this lamp post is a Tim Holtz die that I covered with TH Picket Fence distress crackle paint.  Love the way that crackle makes it look so old and vintage-like. 

Don't forget about our challenge this month at Live & Love Crafts "Warm or Cool Colors".  You do NOT have to use anything from LLC to enter, although it would be great!  Any card you make this month with this theme just add it!!  :)

I just want to enter into the following:

Super super super cool! Look at all of that Frantage and it stayed exactly where you put it! The second thing I noticed was the lamp post all crackled and the vellum. Love it! You must put it on really thick. I need to try my crackle again. I LOVE this card. Absolutely over the top!!

OMG! Eulanda this is simply STUNNING! Your work just gets better and better. As you left it so close to Christmas to make this, I was just wondering if there will be time for it to reach the UK? lol.

Have a great weekend.

All the papers and laces are so gorgeous and the embellishing design is fab. too. I really love what you did.

This is the perfect vintage Christmas card; I love the color choice, and the frantage with a bit of sparkle adds interest so it doesn't get boring. The lamppost looks amazing as does the crackled glass effect...really must find the time to try this. Stunning work. Thank you.
