Gerry.

Another vintage style card. This time for my friend Gerry. We share a bond that cannot be broken. We were born on the same day and also our hubby's share the same first name!!
Just another of my silly billion to one chances. Gerry is a Fashion Diva so this stamp by Rogue Redhead Designs (free with Jan 2013 issue of Craft Stamper) is just the job to use on my Christmas card to her.

 

 I have used red cardstock for the base and the same backing paper by Kaisercraft as my previous card. I think I have found my happy medium. Distress Markers and Pearescent chalks. The close up of the stamp below shows the lovely shimmer effect on her hat and coat. Red bow and the other papers I have used  are from my stash.
