Christmas with Penny Black

Morning all today is the last challenge of this year over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges 
and for this Challenge we are being Sponsored by Penny Black

and  the prize are these beautiful Stamp sets

Our Theme this week is "Here comes Christmas Day" and this is my take on it

The Image is stamped, onto brown card, with flitter glue and then Gliding flakes have been applied

I then layered it onto card that had been covered with the same gliding flakes, this was then layered onto a cream embossed layer. All corners were rounded using a decorative punch. A bow and bell was added to the top left hand corner
And three gold disc's topped with beads were added to the top right hand side

The card was finished with a computer generated sentiment.

Challenges I would like to enter this card into are:

I really hope you come to play along at TTPH

Hope you have a great day
