Penny Black and More - November Challenge

Happy Sunday :-)

Already November, time for a new challenge at Penny Black and More. It should be an easy one for everyone this month, as our theme is Anything Christmas. I am sure many of you will be working on Christmas cards this month, so you can play along. As always you may enter up to 3 times, and you don't have to use a Penny Black stamp. Just be sure the focal point is hand stamped (this can be a clear or rubber image stamp or large sentiment). The only exception to this is Penny Black stickeroos, but other than that you can use any make of stamps. Digis or die cuts as focal points won't be eligible for the prize draws. 

For my card today I created a cute winter scene using stamps from the set "Deck the Halls". I have this set available for purchase brand new in my etsy shop if you are interested. 

The cute critters were colored with copic markers and fussy cut. I used a Whimsy Stamps die to make the hills. The pretty stamped snowflake behind the sentiment on the front and the inside is from the set "Holiday Snippets", which is also available in my shop. 

This is the inside. The large sentiment is from the set Season's Gifts, another one I have up for sale on Etsy. 

 I added some punched snowflakes and lots of glitter. Designer paper is from my stash, probably by Bo Bunny.

 Thanks so much for visiting today!
Hope you're having a great first day of November!
