Pretty Pink Penny Black Xmas Card

Good evening all
Hope you have all had a great weekend.  I know I have.  I would like to welcome Julie to my little bit of blog land, Julie joined me through the night (I think, as I did have a lay in this morning) :)

I was blog hopping this morning and came across a new challenge, which will also assist me in keeping to my plan of at least one Xmas card a week.

So onto today's Xmas card, which made today feel a little warmer.  The more snowflakes I added, the warmer the wet rainy day seemed to be.

So that meant that I needed to use either a sentiment of image from Penny Black.  I chose to use an image, one of my favorites "Little Snowy".  Of course the other reason to use the snowman image is that I do have rather a lot of My Sentiment Exactly snowman sentiments, for some reason!

Any way the new challenge I found is Christmas Stampin' All Year Long this challenged us to make a PINK Xmas card, I also tried to keep this to off white and pink to meet the Winter Wonderland Challenge of monochromatic.

So to the card, here it is.............
An easel card, with basic white card stock and Basic Grey "Eva" 6 x 6 papers and also DCWV "Rose Tinted Christmas" 6 x 6 multi stack.  The pearls, and snowflakes punches from the Hobby House.  Glitter off white card from stash and I used my copics along with the clear At-you glitter pen, to add some light sparkle to snowy's body.

A close up of the MSE words, love this one.

A close up of the image.
Oh look at those rosy cheeks :))

Well I am going to have a lovely relaxing bath, to wash away all the glitter and glue,  to prepare for Dancing on Ice, which is not to far away...... I do love Sunday nights television at the moment, don't know about you?

Take care of each other and hope next week is good to you all.

Hugs  Kate xx
