Penny Black and More - November Mid Month

Happy Monday everyone! 

Sharing a Penny Black cutie today, that I made for our mid-month reminder post at Penny Black and More. There is still a little time left to play along in our Anything Goes challenge, and several chances to win a fabulous prize. 

 To make my card I used one of the stamps from the clear set "Holly Jolly". The image has been colored using copic markers. Sentiment is from the set "Winter Letter Seals" from Whimsy Stamps. The snowflake border die is also from Whimsy Stamps. I embellished with a tiny clear button and twine, did some machine sewing and then added some stickles glitter to finish it off. 

Lots of "snowy" challenges going on, so I am playing along in a few too:

Creative Corner - Let It Snow
Stempelsonnen Challenge - It's Snowing
