Officially Winter...

Good morning, I am not normally posting on a Sunday but I have been asked to be a GD for the Penny Black & More challenge this month and the new challenge goes live today. The theme for the month of November is 'Celebrations' so nice and easy :-)

So onto my card, I have made a Christmas card using a beautiful Penny Black stamp called Christmas Cottage. I used loads of Stickles to give the image lots of sparkly 'snow'. I stamped the image onto kraft card just for a bit of a change...


Supplies:
Image - Christmas Cottage by Penny Black coloured with Promarkers
Paper - Krafty Christmas from Lili of the Valley
Sentiments - Officially Winter seal by Catslife Press (had this stamp for yonks!), Warm Winter Wishes by Pink Petticoat from the Tiny Christmas Sentiments set
Pearl Flourish - The Ribbon Girl
Tree button, twine, pearls, ribbon - stash
Other - Deckle edge rectangle Spellbinders die, Star Dust Stickles, brown chalk inkpad, kraft cardstock
Thanks for looking x
