Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Christmas!

It's the first Saturday of the month...so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...and this month the theme is(of course): 
'Christmas!' 

As usual, we have some fabulous prizes on offer from our lovely sponsors:


Prize - a $20 voucher

I took the opportunity to make a few more one-layer cards (nice and cheap to post!), and got out my 'Before the Snow' Penny Black stamp...stamping it in Versamark, and embossing it using clear powder. I masked off strips at the tops and bottoms of the cards before blending 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink over the top...then adding a sentiment from the 'Bubble Tree' set by Woodware.


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