Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Stars and Stripes

This week's theme over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog is Stars and Stripes. I've done a Christmas card as I need to get ahead a bit with these! I've used my "Santa Spotting stamp again but this time with a different colour scheme. The stars are pretty obvious, but the stripes a very subtle, you might just see that he's carrying a stripey stocking. Here is the card...


I used:

Penny Black "Santa Spotting" stamp
See D's sentiment stamp
Paper from Paper Mill Shop (dk blue and grey)
Snowflake stamp from Tanda Stamps
White acrylic paint to stamp snowflake
Whispers Brush Markers to colour Ted
Embossing Powder for message
Flowers, gems and ribbon from stash
