It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Happy Monday everyone!

I am so excited to share today's post with you. It's my first Design Team card I made for the Penny Black @ All sorts monthly challenge.


This month the theme we have for you is

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

You can get your inspiration from the beautiful Christmas song, or simply from the title.


I hope all you Penny Black lovers will join us, there are several fun prizes up for grabs and you can enter up to 3 times with a new card or other project.

For my card I used the stamp "Caroling Trio". It was so much fun to color!!

I've used my derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. The designer paper is from Basic Grey and cardstock fom Stampin up and couture 80lb. I decided to do some distressing and also sewed the edges. Embellished with some brads, pine tree button, silver cord and of course stickles glitter. The sentiment is from an old retired stampin up set.

I am also entering my card to these challenges:

I can't wait to see what you all come up with using your Penny Black stamps. Several amazing prizes up for grabs so be sure to play along!! Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's amazing work!
