Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes

This week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge is a nice easy one:

'Anything Goes!'

There are two fabulous prizes up for grabs too:



3914K - Joy Filled Stockings



And from the Ribbon Girl:

Fuchsia Mini Ribbon Kit


So, left to my own devices, I chose to make a Christmas card...they're my favourite type of card to make. I've used another old favourite stamp...'Wishes for Kisses', coloured with watercolour pencils...there's some 'Crystal' Stickles on the snow. I used some Core'dinations card for the backing which I picked up in WHSmiths earlier this week. I embossed it using my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystals' and 'Snowflakes' folders...then sanded over the surface to reveal the core.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please stop by the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
