Classic Christmas with Penny Black stamp

This is my DT card for the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge this month, which is "get ahead for Christmas". Pop over and take a look at all the challenge details and the DT inspiration cards here:- http://pennyblackatallsorts.blogspot.com/.
I have a designer paper pad called joyful peace by GCD studios which had been in my stash for a while. It has beautiful sophisticated designs and rich colours for me to play with. I recently  bought a lovely Penny Black Santa stamp and new straight away, this and the papers would work well together. The image reminds me of the Santa in the film, Miracle on 34th Street (1994) played by the famous Richard Attenborough. I know it is really for children but I love it. My husband spotted it after it was made and that is a shame as it was going to be his xmas card.
 I used a Kraft card and kraft paper to stamp on which I thought went well with the papers. I am pleased with how it turned out as this is a bit out of my comfort zone.
This card is for the film/tv challenge at  http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com and blast from  the past challenge no #08 Christmas at  http://letscreatechallenges.blogspot.com/. it is also for the challenges listed below.

A really lovely Christmas creation Shirley.

I looked at that stamp and decided I was not too sure so didn't buy, but seeing how you have used it and especially the colours think it is a 'need' item.
