Penny Black Star

Well, it seems that I am a bit of an addictive personality.  Once I entered the Polkadoodles Christmas in July challenge, I was surfing around looking for other blogs and challenges for inspiration.  I was very happy to stumble upon the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog. 

Being a big fan of Penny Black artwork, and having a number of her stamp sets, I thought I would give this Saturday's Challenge a go.

As the theme was Starburst, and I am already in the Christmas card spirit, this A5 card is what I ended up with.

Penny Black Stars and Snowflakes
 I have been a bit daft, and misplaced the original packing for the stamp set, but it is one of the Penny Black transparent sets...obviously Christmas themed.  I am not sure if it comes across in the picture, but the bottom layer is a light blue glitter paper, then silver textured card, and then sky blue glitter card..  The blue embossed layer was done using blue coredinations card, an embossing plate I got two years ago (and have no idea what it is called or whom it is manufactured by), and the cuttlebug.  The little mouse is coloured using pro markers, and I used punches to make the little snowflakes out of off cuts of the light blue glitter paper and textured silver card layers.

I hope you like it, but if you don't please tell me why so I can learn.  Remember, I am new at all this stuff!

Happy Crafting
