Xmas Pilgrims

This is the card I've made for me to give to my Dad...I was inspired to used this fabby stamp ('Xmas Pilgrims' by Penny Black) by my lovely ABC Christmas Challenge DT buddy Lols...who sent a gorgeous Christmas card with it on. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils to match the 'Wonderful Winter' papers by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment stamps are from a Lili of the Valley set, the snowflakes are a mixture of Mariane Creatables, and Cuttlebug, and the card candy (originally white, but dyed with inks to match the papers) is by Craftwork Cards.
