Christmas tweet


While talking to the girls at craft class one day I said "on this card I am doing a bit of mattering and layering" instead of "matting". They all fell about laughing and never cease to remind me of it. 
I did do some matting on this card and I love the rich red card I found at Ally Pally a while ago. I used another of my favourite Penny Black stamps ( they all are) and she is perfect for making children's Christmas cards. As the card looked quite busy I just added a die cut bow (Creative expressions) with a lovely flocked brad and finished off by adding minimal colouring to my image and glitter.
A quick reminder that the Penny Black and More challenge is around the mid way mark but there is still plenty of time for you to enter. A nice easy challenge of Anything goes with a stamp. Pop over using the link above to check out the rules and list of prizes you could win. There is also plenty of inspiration from the DT.
I am entering my card into the challenges listed below

Again your handling of the stamp leaving the white space is so effective Shirley and a super bow.
