Penny Black and More - December Challenge

Well here we are, December already, I wish time would slow down a bit! Can't believe Christmas is just around the corner. 
I made today's card for the new Penny Black and More challenge. We have a really fun theme this month,  we'd like to see you make a card using black and white plus one other color. 

 
I chose turquoise as my other color. The trees (Penny Black - Crystal Drops) were heat embossed using versamark ink and white embossing powder on Neenah Linen card stock. I inked up the white card stock using distress ink leaving the bottom portion white. Sentiment is from the set Season's Gifts also by Penny Black, I stamped it using Versafine Onyx ink. A piece of black and white striped designer paper was added to separate the image and sentiment. Bottom corners were rounded to finish off the card.

I know this month our theme is a little more challenging, but really fun and I hope you'll come join us. I think this color theme would make some really nice CAS cards, perfect if you're behind with your holiday creations! And don't forget we have some really great prizes to give away again, this time from Penny Black, Marianne Designs, Crafty Ribbons, and a stamp from our DT member Sam. Lots of chances to win! Any stamp company is welcome, just no digis and be sure your focal point is stamped. 

And that would be all for today. Thank you so much for visiting!!
