Victorian Decoupage

Here's my card from our Monday night craft session.  This week after tea and home baked florentines, we all made Christmas cards featuring decoupage.  I used stash from the latest Docrafts goodie bag, and got busy with my distressing tool for a vintage look.
 The papers, die cut decoupage and little tag are all from Papermania's Victorian Christmas range, all I added to it was some textured gold cardstock, some kraft card, crochet lace, some Anita's Christmas ribbon, a double bow, and a few gems.
