Retro Merry Monday!

 Hi there!  It has been a while since I played in the Merry Monday challenge.  This week's Merry Monday Challenge is all about retro or vintage.  I thought this new lamp post image from the new ODBD set called Home for the Holidays would work nicely!  I colored the lamp post in vintage colors and fussy cut it out.  The background papers from the ODBD Winter Paper Collection are whitewashed with white gesso and the edges are distressed.  I added an ODBD Fence and the 'snow bank' is cut with a ODBD Leafy Edged Borders die.  I spattered more gesso and added sequins and seam binding to complete the card.

Here are the ODBD supplies I used for this card:

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your Tuesday!
