Penny Black Saturday Challenge Christmas or Winter










Christmas/Winter



Hello!  Sorry to be a little late with my Saturday Penny Black card-life sometimes gets in the way!

Well here I am----finally---with my card for the December Challenge-better late than never!

If  you are a a Penny Black fan-you must be familiar with Snowy!  I always get tickled at the stories Judy Jung tells  about Snowy on the Penny Black website blog-she's quite a character.

For my card today I am using Snowy from the transparent set Jolly Friends.  He is colored with copics and mounted on a Lawn Fawn stitched  oval mat. I used a Signo white pen to add little dots of snow for a little something extra.  The sentiment is from another new stamp set that I just got-Warm Wishes. Can't wait to color that one up-it's a cutie!

The base of my card is made with a lovely Sizzix/Tim Holtz thinlit die set Holiday Knit.  I used two of the dies and  alternated the cuts and added alternating colored strips of paper behind each one. A little time consuming, but such a pretty effect!  

That's it for today-I hope you will join our December Challenge-we love to see your creations!
