Penny Black Saturday December Challenge!

Good Morning!
 It's time for a new challenge over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE today and the theme is 'Anything Goes + Option of Sparkle & Shine!'

I've created a clean and simple card today and kept it as minimal as possible for me! I even kept the stamped image as black and white for the simplistic look. The stamp I've used is an oldie but one of my all time favourites! 
Unfortunately you can't tell on the photograph, but I have added some frantage embossing powder over the main image for an extra wintery effect ... I really need to find a way to improve my photographs of Clean & Simple cards.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges -
SIMON SAYS STAMP - TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - ANYTHING GOES
 INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black Stamps
Doodlebug Sprinkles & Papermania Shimmer Dome Stickers
Frantage Chunky White Embossing Powder

 Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely weekend!
HAPPY CRAFTING!

Something a little Different ...

Happy Monday Everyone!
Today I'm sharing a card that I made simply just for fun! I was sifting through my collection of stamped images a couple of days ago and came across this image from Hanglar & Stanglar. 
As a budding gardener I couldn't resist inking her up and having a little play! I'm not sure on the name of stamp seeing as I don't have it, although it is one that I would love to have!

I'm not too happy with the lighting on this photo as the colours don't pop as much as they do in real life ... but hey ho!
