Swing into Christmas

Hi everyone

I hope you are all well and have had a good weekend. It seems so long since I posted a card. I had one all ready for last week's Winter Wonderland which was "Don't use a Christmas stamp or backing papers", then I picked up some disgusting throat thing and I've been feeling miserable ever since so I never managed to get it posted. I was lucky enough to win their challenge the week before and I do enjoy taking part. Never mind, that card's for Wee Steven for Christmas so it will be put to good use.

Here's another effort using the other stamp I treated myself to from Penny Black. I love these new releases of older stamps and, even better, they are unmounted. I hope they bring some more out.

My card recipe:
Image: Penny Black
Coloured with Distress Inks and watercolour pencils
Designer Papers: Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses
Pearls, ribbon, brad, chain and charm from stash
Silver Glammer Dust
Platinum Stickles
Tools: Cuttlebug, Snowflake dies

I can enter this one for 3 challenges:
Paptertake Weekly - this is Christmas Crackers which is a bit of an "open" challenge this week.
Charisma Cards- Anything Christmas.
Creative Card Crew - favourite things.

I used an older sketch that I really like but I can't remember whose it is. Sorry.

That it, I think. I hope you like it.

Thanks for dropping by.
