Early Christmas Makes at Penny Black & More

Our challenge at Penny Black & More @ Allsorts this month is Early Christmas Makes.  For my DT card I have used Penny Black stamp DK3908K "Favourite Time". I paper pieced her outfit to match the background papers, and it was tricky due to the size of the image - but I managed it LOL! I inked the edges of the papers and used a faux stitch stamp along the edges of the stripes. I've used a memory box die "frostyville border" and punched snowflakes sprinkled with diamond dazzles to complete the card. The sentiment is from a Paula Pascale set.

I do hope you can join us this month, you will get a head start on your cards, and my teamies have made some beautiful inspirational work to help you.
I'd like to enter this card into the challenges at Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT - paper piecing and  Cute Card Thursday - a stitch in time.
