Coming Your Way!

I'm feeling Christmassy again today...this time I've used a Penny Black stamp called 'Coming Your Way'...ooooh I do hope so with all those lovely parcels! :0)
I coloured the image using watercolour pencils to match the blues & browns of the My Mind's Eye 'Festive Frost' papers. I distressed all of the edges, using inks and my distressing tool...then added some faux stitching to the papers with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment is from a little Studio G set, and the little chocolate coloured pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Challenges for this card:
Since I've featured a Christmas card today, I thought I'd remind you about our ABC Christmas Challenge 'J is for Joy Fold Card' challenge...there's some more inspiration on the blog today...so why not pop over there to check it out.
