Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Photo Inspiration

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT Post

**********************************
This week, it's Kate's turn to set the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has chosen a wonderfully festive photo for you to take your inspiration from:


I've used a Penny Black image and sentiment from the 'Holly-Jolly' set...which I coloured using watercolour pencils, adding some Stickles to the baubles and star on the tree. The papers are from the pad that came free with this month's Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine...I added the faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please visit the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.
