Being Together is the Best Gift of All - Snowy Friends with Penny Black

Another Christmas card for you!
Now you know that Diana at Magnolia-Licious sells Magnolia Stamps but did you know that she also carries a selection of super cute images from Penny Black
Today I got to use the adorable Mimi, Betsy and Snowy and I went with a bright and fun color combination (not a piece of traditional Christmas patterned paper anywhere to be seen)

Card Recipe:
Image - Mimi, Betsy and Snowy by Penny Black
Sentiment - Clearly Sentimental Christmas by My Favorite Things
Medium - Copic Markers
Corner Die - Corner Bow by Memorybox
Snowflake Border Die - Gabriella Border by Memorybox
Paper- Memorable by My Minds Eye
Flowers - Sugar Blooms by Prima
Glitter - Coarse by Martha Stewart
Rhinestones - Michaels
Doily - Wilton

I used some coarse glitter on the hats, makes a change from my usual go to super fine.
And I colored the snowman (and snow) with a very pale blue, works really well with the paper I think.
Anyway I hope you enjoyed this and be sure to be back tomorrow for another Christmas card.
