Penny Black Challenge

The Penny Black Saturday challenge this week, is 'red, christmas and embossing,' - so this is my entry.  The stamp is actually from a clear birthday set, but my Christmas stamps were all too big to fit this sketch.  The sketch is from Sketch and Stash - my new stash is the red patterned paper - it came from a free pad that came with the last Quick Cards magazine, and also the Happy Christmas sentiment - I bought it from the Craftwork Cards stand at the NEC.  The stamp is really old and the embossing folder is a couple of years old as well.  The corner die is a Marianne one and the felt snowflake strand is from the Christmas wrapping section in Marks and Spencer!  I have added stickles to the embossed snowflakes and corner, but it doesn't really show up in the photo.
