Contemporary Noel

I was very lucky to win the Penny Black challenge again, I entered their weekly challenge for years and never won, then when they went monthly, twice on the run. My prize was the lovely wooden stamp featured on my card , called "crystal wreath".
I stamped it onto cream shiny card  using versa mark then covered with black embossing powder and heat embossed. Then I inked the edges with Tim Holtz worn lipstick.
The papers are docraft vintage and the Noel sentiment is a Hobby Craft topper. I've used a martha stewart holly border punch , added gems and a ribbon and bow to complete my contempory looking card.
My Hubby said wow , so it obviously appeals to males!

challenges entered :

oh la la challenge : Christmas sentiment
crafty hazelnut's Christmas challenge : snowflakes
totally stampalicious : create a Christmas card or project

I'm still miserable about not getting the display job, it's nice to be home and have lots of crafting time but It's not nice having no money.
Have a good day. janex

Wow indeed! It's a corker. I found some DL cards in my cupboard yesterday so put them on the desk to try to remember to use them and today I see you've beaten me to it. Love that stamp - lucky girl to win the Penny Black challenge twice and to get that fab stamp to play with.
