A card for Christmas


My first Cristmas card this year. I am way behind but at least I have made a start.
I used one of my most favourite Penny Black stamps called warmest wishes which I use every year on at least three of my cards. Money well spent I would say. 
I stuck with the red and white theme throughout and added die cut glitter border, snowflakes, red bow, pearls and fine glitter for the snow. The paper is from Papermania and the snowflakes were cut from a Spellbinders die.
As we are at the begining of a new month it is time to remind you of the new Penny Black challenge for the month of November and as you can guess the theme this month is Christmas. Pop over to the Penny Black and More blog for all the details and list of prizes.
Oh, and not forgetting the gorgeous work from the design team for your inspiration.
I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

A very striking card Shirley, I would never have thought of keeping the white space on the image but it works beautifully.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
