Wishes for Kisses

I have a Christmas card to share today...using an image that I'd coloured before last Christmas, but not got round to's 'Wishes for Kisses' by Penny Black. The papers are from the 'Winter Wishes' collection by Echo Park...I distressed the edges, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from a set by Lili of the Valley, and the snowflakes were cut using Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs dies.

Challenges for this card:
