Midmonth Reminders

Happy Thursday and thanks for visiting! 
Today I have a Penny Black Christmas card to share, which I made for the Penny Black and More mid-month reminder as well as a reminder of my Monday Morning Challenge, which is happening right here on my blog.

Our challenge at Penny Black and More this month is Celebrations, which includes all kinds of occasions you would celebrate, so Christmas of course is included. We have some very generous sponsors this month. Be sure to play along for a chance to win.

My Monday Morning challenge this month is Winter or Christmas, so my card today fits for both these challenges. The prize for my challenge is a cute wood mounted rubber stamp from Penny Black which is being sponsored by me/ my Etsy store Timeless Stamps. I still have the Christmas stamps marked down, and the one I have used today is included. 

To make my card I stamped the beautiful image using black stazon ink onto watercolor paper and then colored using distress inks. I applied lots of glitter to finish it off. A very quick card to make.
