Silent Night

Hello everyone

It's not long until Christmas now, is it? I thought I was cracking on well with my Christmas cards until Kimberley got rid of most of them at her charity thingumy bob which has left me with a grand total of 6 cards including this one. I can see me having to go out to buy some!

I love this little image. I got it last year and I couldn't possibly not use it again. It's a Penny Black stamp and since the sketch on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge was such a nice one this week I thought I would enter. I've called this card Silent Night but maybe I should have called it Starry Night? Reminds me of the old Don McLean song...

The image is Sweet Nativity by Penny Black which I coloured with Distress Inks
I used Magnolia papers and Coredinations cardstock
The flowers are by Magnolia and from my stash
Lace from stash
Loads of Stickles
Tools: Leone Em branch punch; Fiskars Star Border Punch; Sewing Machine
Sentiment: from stash

I would like to enter these challenges:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - the lovely sketch
Totally Gorjuss - Not So Traditional Christmas
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club Challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Sparkle
ABC Christmas Challenge Blog - X is for Xmas (with the option of using flowers)

Suzanne has another little Candy on her blog if you would like to enter. It's a lovely Lili of the Valley Christmas stamp to which she will add some stamped images and other little bits and pieces when she draws a winner next week. This is the link if you would like to enter. Well worth a wee look. Good luck!

See you all soon. Thanks for dropping by.
