Three Challenges in One


Whilst trying to make the most of my craft weekend I decided to make a card for one of my fabourite challenges - Penny Black - but also to tie it in with a few other challenges that are currently in progress.

First: Penny Black Saturday Challenge #16 is Seasons - so I have made a Christmas card.

Second: My Time To Craft #30 is Blue, which ties in nicely with the Christmas theme.

Last but not least: I have laid out the card in line with Friday Sketchers #21 , though I should mention I didn't have internet access and a friend drew it out for me ... the sketch I followed was slightly different from the picture below, but I did my best LOL :-).

I used: Penny Black "Snowy" stamp inked and edged with Colour Box queue ink from the "deep sea" set (this idea was devised by Mand, who tried it cos she hadn't got her waterbrush to colour in a Versafine image!!); sentiment stamp from "Make Your Mark" in York; snowflake brads by Dovecraft; white sparkly brad from Doodlebug "sugar coated" range; flower by Cardology; blue star gems by Papermania; ribbon and papers from my stash; white glitter card embossed with Cuttlebug snowflakes folder.
