Penny Black Saturday Challenge 36

This week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge combines my two favourite things...a sketch, and, of course, Penny Black stamps! I decided to use it to make this week's Christmas card - I can't believe I'm still managing to stick to that resolution! The image ('Night before Xmas') was sent to me in a swap by lovely PBSC DT member Pauline, and I've coloured it using traditional reds and greens. The stripey paper is by Scrapbooking Australia ('Story Time - Arthur's Stripes'), and the other patterned papers are from the 'Festive' pack by My Mind's Eye. The plain green card was embossed using the Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder. The red and green shimmery ribbon was a Christmas present from my Secret Santa - thank you Pauline ;0) - and the buttons and brads are from my stash.
