Digital stamping meets Old School Parchment

I haven't made a parchment card in ages, so decided to combine one of my favourite digital stamps (Kenny K of course) with old school parchment work. By old school I mean placing the parchment over the paper pattern with tape and perforating through the parchment and the paper just the way I was first taught, before all the grids became fashionable. I must admit I cheated a bit by printing the image onto the parchment but that is because I don't think my tracing skills would do the image justice. I used Faber Castell Polychromos pencils to colour from the back and front. The cut work border was from an old Pergamano Christmas pattern C18. The snowflake punches are from various punches and dies I have.
I am entering this project in the Kenny K Holiday Chic Sparkle challenge
