Penny Black Saturday #129 - Monochrome Christmas...

A new challenge today from Penny Black Saturday :)
{Monochrome Christmas}
Another handy challenge to get all your Christmas cards made!!
I have used the lovely 'Snow Dust' stamp from Penny Black - a very versatile stamp which can be used all year round really.
No colouring for this card!! I got out my white sparkly embossing powder and heat gun for this creation....not used them in a long time!!
The dry embossing with snowflake detail on the card is inspired by the wonderful Kathy from the Daily Marker :)
I saw this gorgeous embossing folder used by Kathy on her blog and had to have it!!
I have embossed the snowflakes too and added clear gems to the trees and snow.

There's a bumper prize giveaway this week and another fabulous tutorial by the lovely Debbi....
Check out the {BLOG} for all the details and to see all the gorgeous DT creations :)

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -
A Spoonfull of Sugar #131 - Anything Goes...
Fab n Funky Challenges #50 - 'going with the flow!'
Simon Says Stamps  - Let it Snow...
Cute Card Thursday #140 - Blast from the Past - I have chosen #125 Tree-mendous!

We have LOTS of snow here today!! so my card is very apt!
Enjoy the snow if you any too :)  A good excuse to stay indoors and keep warm & craft!!

Thanks for looking xx
