Vintage Christmas

I made this card for Late Night Stampers Challenge 192 - Tearing paper.   I made a card for my daughter's birthday last fall that was vintage looking (you can see it at the bottom of this post).  I liked it so much that I CASEd myself for this one.   
I colored the image with cherry cobble and always artichoke and a blender pen.  You can use the clear blocks as an ink palette.  Scribble ink on the block and pick it up with the blender pen.  To get a similar tearing pattern on multiple layers, line the layers up and tear them together.   

The inside of the card and a closeup of the flowers.  I used the retired 5 petal flower punch and the crochet trim. 

My daughter's birthday card from last year that inspired the Christmas card.
