Wishes for Kisses

I was feeling festive again yesterday...so I have another Christmas card to share with you today. I've used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps...'Wishes for Kisses'......just perfect for the 'Mistletoe Kisses' challenge over at the DCD Christmas Club this week. I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday,  using papers from the 'Eskimo Kisses' collection (by BasicGrey), and I distressed the edges, and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a gel pen...just right for the BasicGrey Challenge. The sentiment stamp is also by Penny Black, and I used an EK Success punch for the scalloped border, adding some adhesive pearls along the edge, and also to the centres of the little snowflakes cut using a Cuttlebug die. I'm also going to enter this into Creative Inspirations (Wed) 'Animals', and Cupcake Crafts 'Distressing' challenges.
