Penny Black Christmas Card



I coloured this image before christmas but never got round to making it up so this is last nights efforts. Yesterday I tidied my craft room. Well I say tidied, just cleared my desk, moved a few things about and discovered loads of new stash that I'd forgotten about including the papers for this card which are DCVW and the clear bubble sentiment which was a new pack laying in the back of a draw. Coloured the image with Promarkers and added some stickles. Edged with my Galaxy Markers, new they were around here somewhere! Dont think this meets any challenges but sometimes I like to make what comes to mind and at least thats another card made for this Christmas. Thanks for looking!
