Penny Black Challenge

Good morning to the bank holiday weekend everyone. A chilly start........I heard the heating click in for a few minutes in the early hours so I guess that's an indication that Autumn is close.

The gang over at the Penny Black challenge really have made life easy for me this week, the theme is Christmas. As as lots of you know, for the past week or so I have been creating Christmas cards with the new launch Penny Black stamps for Sir Stampalots Christmas launch which is running today and tomorrow. So needless to say this card is one of those.

The main image is Penny Black 30-036, the greeting 3995F and 3892K snow scroll which was one of last seasons releases. All are stamped with versafine black and embossed with detail clear and the angel coloured with Sakura pens. The punch is Martha Stewart embosses scallop and DP's My Minds Eye.
