Penny Black at All Sorts - September Challenge

Happy first of September everyone!

I am so happy that I am back and creating for Penny Black at All Sorts challenge!!
Penny Black are one of my most favorite brand of stamps, of course they have the most adorable critter stamps, but have you seen their big range of other stamps?? Cute kids, scenery, flowers... they are just amazing. You can view their stamps here. Plus I heard some other exciting Penny Black news too, but not sure if it is all that public yet, so I better not share at this time.

Since it's a new month it is also time for our monthly challenge, and this month the theme is

Get ahead for Christmas.

Perfect theme, as it is only a few more months until christmas.

Here is what I made.

I used a couple of stamps from the clear set "Holly Jolly" by Penny Black to make my card. I bought the set from PB stamps, great service by the way!

I really need to get some new christmas designer paper soon, I was totally uninspired by my christmas papers, so I started looking in my other papers and found this one from a 6x6 Basic Grey pack (I think it's luscious lime). I thought the colors in my paper sort of matched the way I colored the image.
I embellished with some double stitched wasabi ribbon from stampin up, a felt poinsettia with rhinestones (Martha Stewart crafts), applied some glitter to the stars and snow, and then used my sewing machine to finish it off.

I'd love to enter my card to the following challenges:
