Penny Black at Allsorts DT Call

Good morning everyone, we have gorgeous sunny weather here in East Yorkshire this morning and its sooo warm - luvverly!!!!

On doing a spot of blog hopping the other I came across a new monthly challenge, Penny Black at Allsorts, they have a DT call out alongside their current challenge which you can read all about HERE

They have a fab challenge at the mo which was well worth joining in just for that and the challenge is......

"GLITTER and GLITZ"

I love my Penny Black stamps, as some of you know - I have quite a collection lol, so there's no way I could pass up on the opportunity to join this very talented team.  When I first started blogging in October my blog was full of those fun PB images but they've become rather neglected this year.  Making this card was like meeting up again with a long lost and trusted friend lol!!!!



I've glittered around the white edge of the topper and all over the parcels.  I also added stickles to create the icy snow.  I've attached a papermania snowflake brad to my snowflake punched shapes and clear gems to the corners of the card.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenge...............

The Sweet Stop - Sketch


The Pink Elephant - Ribbons and Sparkle
Creative Craft - Transport
My Time to Craft - Glitter and Glitz
Creative Card Crew - Sparkle and Shine
ABC Challenge - B is for Blue
Crafty Ann's Challenge - Christmas in August

I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the day.  Happy crafting.
