Stamp Something Penny Black for a Winter Wonderland Waltzing Mouse

The most recent challenge at Penny Black is a "recipe for 3 papers, one ribbon and one charm" and I have combined this with the great simple "sketch" at Waltzing Mouse.   I absolutely love the Waltzing Mouse stamps - wonderful sentiments and fabby images but, for the time being at least, it is not a requirement to use a WM stamp in order to enter their challenges.  I used these cute little angels from PB's Candy Cane Wishes set. A very versatile set of stamps not just for Christmas.  This one is for a "Thank You" card to be entered into the Winter Wonderland challenge (they have a DT call at the moment too) and Stamp Something who want something that "Glitters".
Two of my papers are K&Co. The triangular one at the top is DCWV Old World.   The ribbon and the little heart charm underneath the bow are from my stash and the sentiment and gingerbread men are also PB.
I can't work the camera this evening so sorry for the photo quality!

Hi Lesley

What a cute main image and those little gingerbread men are a brilliant finishing touch.

Gorgeous colours and layout too.

A lovely vintage feel to this one.

Love Jules xx

Hi Lesley, Happy New Year xx
I love this card, and the sentiment makes me smile, it's so cute!

You wanted to know where I got my acetate from? I bought it from ebay ages ago, so I can't be sure of the sellers name. But when you search, look for thick acetate (not acetate film) I think mine is 300 micron thickness. If the listing says it's suitable for making boxes with it then that should be fine :)

Lesley, when I color on Kraft cardstock many times I use Prisma Pencils and Gamsol to blend. I find that works best. I have also used copics before too. Hope that helps.
