Monochrome Christmas

Hello again!  My last Christmas card post earlier today was really bright so with this one I have gone the opposite and its monochrome.  I do love creating in different styles.



This card was so quick and simple but I love it!  Mind you, I absolutely adore this image however I use it!  Its by IndigoBlu and is called Stag Cliffhanger.  All the stamping is done in black Versafine. The edging is also done with the same stamp just using the tree with first, second and third generation stamping.  I added dries white glue and glitter for sparkly snow and glued the panel to a black card base - job done!  This is one of my favourite Christmas stamps ever!

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

IndigoBlu - Monochrome
Penny Black and More - Anything Christmas
Stamping Sensations - Christmas Greetings
Allsorts Challenge - Feature a Creature

Truly Fabulous Challenges with loads of inspiration!

Thank you for visiting me.  Take care.  Christine xxx
