Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Christmas is Coming!

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT card

************************************


This week, it's Tracie's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has chosen:
'Christmas is Coming!'

I've used a stamp from the 'Christmas Critters' set by Penny Black, which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding some 'Crystal' Stickles to the snow. The glittery papers are from the 'Wonderful Winter' pad by My Mind's Eye, the snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs Creatables and Cuttlebug dies, and the sentiment stamp is also by Penny Black.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
