Vintage Christmas Card

My last effort at making a Christmas Card this year.
And you might just see some of the gold rub and buff and the misty silver white
here and there on the card to give it a frosty cold look.
I made this vintage Christmas for my daughter in law's parents in Japan.
I used vintage Christmas Carol music sheet.
A copy of a vintage Christmas card and vintage papers and ephemera.
It was really difficult cutting out that tiny robin, but  he was so cute I had just to.
This is the back of the card - the vintage music score was wrapped around, so too the card print.  I found a little bird which I thought finished it off - no Father Christmasses as they do not celebrate Christmas over there - but I wanted them to get a feel of our celebrations

Popped in the post to Japan in a mail art envelope of snow and stamped winter trees and firs and a winter snow bird on the back

I hope that they like it - I worked on it for two days on and off - and at least it is original

Christmas Card? Who me?

 I am hopeless at making cards, but having joined a Christmas Card swap on a forum
I just had to go through with it.
