Retro Christmas

Hi and Happy Sunday,

I love the fifties and sixties, great rock 'n roll music, great styles.
I was born in 1969, but sometimes I wish I was a young adult in the late fifties.
The 50's and 60's seem like great decades in my eyes.

The cards I'm sharing with you today have a retro style.
The image on both card I bought here on Etsy. It is a digital image from an old Christmas card.
I loved it right away.

I made two cards with it, both in a retro style but very different.


For both card I used the same sketch from Yns challenge blog.


On the first card I used full image and the background paper is from a local store.


The other card I used the image with white background and the paper is free digital paper I found on the internet.


Two totally different cards, one more traditional, but with the same image and in a retro style.

I would like to enter these card in the following challenges:
