Penny Black Christmas card

The Penny Black Saturday challenge (here)
is for Holly and Ivy or Christmas flowers/trees. As I have just bought some Penny Black stickeroos I thought I would have a go at using one of the images. I must say I was very impressed with the stickers. They are not flimsy and peel off easily from the sheet. At approx. £1.50 per sheet with several images on each sheet, I thought they were excellent value. The colours are lovely and rich and the backgrounds are lovely too. I choose this gorgeous bauble to make this bold Christmas card with all my favourite Christmas colours. Not only did I enter the Penny Black challenge but lots more which are listed below. Holly and Ivy or Christmas flowers or trees. Christmas in red Christmas bauble Anything goes Christmas card/tag/ornament Christmas Christmas optional sketch Christmas card using 3 colours Your favourite colour combo. Anything goes Christmas Traditional red and green Christmas card. Anything goes Christmas Traditional Christmas colours Red, white and.......... Christmas Anything goes Christmas papers and embellishments Baubles

Gorgeous card! I love cards like these but I find that they are difficult to do well. You do it well. Great job!
