Penny Johnson Green/Black & Grey...

I've managed to make a card just for challenges for a change. Used my new Penny Johnson "Looking Chic" Stamp and for the first time have coloured just with Distress Ink Pads. Papers are Magnolia and the sentiment is Crafty Individuals. I've never done this colour combo before but have to say I love it. Nice to try other combo's isn't it!
I took the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday and have rotated it to fit the image. I've not entered this challenge for a very long time and do so love some of their sketches. Added some Faux Stitching, Flowers (Prima/Wild Orchid), Stickles, Red Ribbon and Glitter Gems.

Heres is a list of challenges this card fits onto;
ASFOS - Winter Wonderland
Incy Wincy Designs - Faux It Up!
Craftalicious Challenge - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes - Change of Season
Simple Doodles - Winter Warmers
ABC - X for Xmas
Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Christmas Come Early
Wild Orchid Challenge - Stitch It Up

Back soon with another card and some new to share is on the horizon!

Thanks for dropping by my blog today.
