Penny Black Saturday Challenge 21

Now, I really should be working, and not crafting...I have loads to do today, but I just couldn't resist joining in with my favourite challenge. The theme for this week's Penny Black challenge is 'Get Sparkly/Bonfire Night', and as I couldn't find a suitable stamp for 'Bonfire Night' (and don't have time this weekend to try and adapt one) I've gone down the 'sparkly' route. As you can see, I'm still making Christmas cards, and have used one of my favourite stamps again, 'Snowy'. I've coloured him with pearly paints - the photo doesn't show it very well, but he is very sparkly. I've used the Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' embossing folder on some silver paper for the background, and some really glittery ribbon, for some more sparkles.
I'd also like to say a BIG congratulations to all the new Design Team members - I'm really looking forward to seeing your fabulous creations in the weeks to come!


Now, I really must get back to work...
