Anything Goes at Penny Black and More

Happy Sunday! November already - it's crazy! And it has gotten really cold. Halloween was freezing!!! Took my Ninja trick or treating, but little Elsa decided to stay home and warm instead. Smart choice!

It's time for a new challenge at Penny Black and More. This month we are going to make it easy for you, as the theme is "Anything Goes". But I have a feeling we are going to see lots of Winter and Christmas cards :-)
That's what I decided to do, since I will be needing a few more to send off. 


I stamped onto copic blending card and colored  using copic markers. The card was then inked using distress ink. I really wanted a CAS card, but it needed something extra, so I used a music sheet stamp on the background, as well as some other stamps in the corner. Embellished with the little jingle bells diecuts and some twine, and finished off with glitter.


Here is another view. Aren't these mice the cutest!!


Product list:
Caroling Trio by Penny Black, Music Sheet BG stamp by Hero Arts,
old SU sentiment (merry little christmas)
xpress  blending card, SU card stock, designer paper from stash
jingle bells die set by Whimsy
colored with copic markers

Using the music sheet in the background was a really good idea Ellie and perfect placement against the focal image.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
