Oh Christmas Tree....

Welcome back to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Can you believe it's December?

The theme this month is, as always, 'Anything Goes' or, yes you guessed it -  'CHRISTMAS!'. 

I recently returned from a wonderful holiday in Europe and it was definitely starting to  feel like Christmas over there, but now I'm back in Australia and I'll admit, the sunshine and warmth just don't evoke the same festive atmosphere. 

So to get myself back in the mood, I played some Christmas carols as I was making this card....

The stamp is called Christmas Glow and I  knew the first time I saw it, that I had to own it!!!

I used distress inks and Zig Markers, colouring directly on the stamp and spritzing with water. I touched up the stamped image with the markers. The sentiment die is also from Penny Black.

So now it's your turn! Check out the projects from the rest of the team and enter the challenge here. As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch, who will give the randomly chosen winner a $20 voucher.


  1. What a beautiful card - your treatment of the tress image is stunning, and the die cut word is the perfect complement.
