Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells...

The Penny Black Saturday Challenge is celebrating it's 100th challenge this week...congratulations girls! I've entered every challenge so far...so I just had to join in! There's a fab sketch to follow...incorporating the number '100'...that's such a great idea! I've combined it with the 'Jingle Bells' theme of Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club, and Winter Wonderland's 'Cute Creatures' theme. The image is from the Penny Black 'Christmas Critters' set, and the papers are by BasicGrey ('Eskimo Kisses'). I used my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes folder for the embossing and 'Ice Crystal' die to cut the large snowflake, from which I've hung a few jingle bells (from Hobbycraft). I'm afraid I did move the sentiment (a Studio G stamp)...I didn't think you'd be able to read it if I stamped it directly on to the paper...and I didn't quite leave enough room to mat and layer it underneath the image...lol!
