Penny Black Challenge 12 this week is "STARS AND STRIPES".
I've used a stamp from the T for Transparent set "Christmas Critters",coloured in with prisma's,sansador and paper stumps,and a touch of glamour dust round the cuff of the mitt,i've then cut this into a star shape,matted and layered using nestabilities and then 3d'd onto the card.
The papers are both HOTP Christmas pad,over from last year.
Sentiment is from See D's "Magical Christmas"set,attached with star shaped brads from stash.
I've finished off with a small hatpin embellishment which i made,and some satin ribbon from my stash...this makes 3 Christmas cards only another 103 to

Ooooooo love your new look blog. It's fab. Just catching up on your beautiful cards and just as expected... they're stunning!! I've got some of the new Messy rabbit stamps, can't wait to get a chance to ink them up.
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. It's so encouraging to hear from you. The classes at The Craft Barn yesterday were so much fun. Hope I get lots more opportunities like that again. Anyway, enough rambling from me. Keep up your stunning work.
