Wishes for Kisses

I love this Penny Black stamp ('Wishes for Kisses')...in fact I think it's one of my favourite Christmas stamps. I've managed to squeeze in quite a few challenges on this card: I used the fab Sketch Saturday sketch; the 'Non-traditional Christmas Colours - NO Red or Green' theme of the Papertake Weekly and Creative Inspirations challenges; the 'Girly Christmas' theme of the Penny Black Saturday Challenge; Simon Says Stamp's 'Let it Snow' theme; and the Cupcake Craft Challenge theme of 'Christmas Carols'...in my case 'Let it Snow'. I've used papers from the 'Rose-Tinted Christmas' stack by DCWV, stamping my Penny Black sentiment directly on to the paper. I used some 'Polar White' Flowersoft for snow underneath the hedgie & robin. The snowflake (which has been coated with Glamour Dust) was cut using the Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die, but I cut the tips off, as it was too big for the card! lol
