Penny Black Snowman

Hi everyone, sorry not to have been visiting for a couple of days but my laptop decided to go on the blink. My very clever Hubby has managed to fix it (again) so I'm now back in business

I'm here with another christmas card this time using a Penny Black snowman stamp coloured with Promarkers with a bit of Stickles added for sparkle. I matted the image onto some dark blue card, then onto a piece of embossed card before attaching to the card blank. To finish I added a Penny Black die-cut sentiment that I cut in white and dark blue so that I could off-set to give that shadow effect.

I made this for the following challenges

Penny Black Holiday Head Start challenge 'holiday theme'

Penny Black and More challenge 'get ready for christmas'

Addicted To Stamps challenge 'christmas'

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'christmas with option - add some sparkle'

Deep Ocean challenge 'fave colour combo'    for christmas cards my favourite colour combo is definitely blue and white

Thanks for taking the time to pop by today and I hope you all have a great week.
