Vintage white Christmas

Ok, this one was a real challenge for me. Vintage children tend to creep me out, not in a good way, and I don't like using white. So, when I found out June at DezinaWorld was bringing out a Christmas Children collage sheet, I decided to combine it with the All White challenge over at Craft Your Days Away, because after all, they're meant to be challenging, right? Lol, and this little cutie isn't creepy, and the images is white. Add in a few more challenges for good measure, and this is the end result.
Here are the challenges:
Friday Sketchers - sketch 126
Craft Your Days Away - all white. Leave lots of white background
Die Cut Dreams - no colouring plus feature a heart
Kaboodle Doodles - vintage
Totally Stampalicious - use a red bow
Bah Humbug Christmas Challenge - presents

Creepy vintage children. I'm with you on that one Susan! Great job with the kiddo and the white. I haven't ever made an all white card, but have seen some beauties lately. Maybe i have been inspired. Maybe.
