Penny Black challenge Week 25


I just recently found the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/2008/11/week-25-no-patterned-paper.html and this is so great because I just love Penny Black stamps.
This is my first Penny Black Challenge, we are challenged not to use any patterned paper this time around. I had so much fun making this card!!
I got this image thru the PIF thread over on SCS. I colored it using my blick studio markers, which are alcohol based markers similar to copics but much cheaper. The scallop edge mat was created with my nestabilites. The snowflake cuttlebug background I also received thru PIF http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=401693&page=2
I applied stickles to most of the snowflakes, as well as the snow in the main image. Glassy Glaze was applied to the christmas lights and stickles to the star. To finish this simple card off I added the sentiment Merry little christmas from an old SU stamp set "Cute Converse" punched it out and layered it on a larger cirlce, added the star button and brad as well as the stitched ribbon. Then I adhered the card front to Wild wasabi Cardstock. This was such a simple card to make but I do love how it turned out!
Thanks for looking!
