Celebrate the Season! - DT-Project for Country View Challenges

Hello dear Blogfriends, welcome to my blog today!
The countdown is running - only 24 days left to Christmas.
But it´s also the first of the month, what means: a new challenge over at Country View Challenges.
This time the lovely Debs is hosting the theme:  "Christmas Theme, Reds, Greens & (optional) Rust"

I made a very vintage card in red and green.

And this is what I did:

First I chose a nice patterned background paper and a fitting image. The background paper I distressed at the edges with a knife, colored the edges with green Archival ink and DO frayed burlap. Then I glued it down on top of a card.
 I fuzzy cut the image and distressed the edges again with DO frayed burlap.
I matted the image with green cardstock, added some cardboard at the back and glued it onto the card. 
Now I took some chipboard pieces and painted them with white Gesso, 
 colored them with Archival Ink Library Green
and heat embossed the pieces with two different green embossing powders. 
Then I put them around the image, added some liquid pearls in red and glued down some flowers. 
 Now I stamped a seasonal stamp and embossed it with the same green embossing powder as I used on the chipboard pieces.

 To make the sentiment fit better, I used again DO frayed burlap and drippled some water on top for even more interest.
I glued it down with foam squares, 
and lastly I added some white splatters with watered down Gesso.

Here are some close ups: 

Well, that´s it for today, I´ll be back at the 5th of December with my second inspiration, I hope to see you here again!
Now I hope you will find time to join in with our challenge this month, as usual you have the chance to win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!
