Saturday Sketch Penny Black Style!

This is my attempt at this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge, as I have far tooooo much time on my hands at the moment I thought I would make a serious attempt at getting my Christmas cards done and dusted!I have used Penny Black stamp called "Christmas Spirit" and have coloured it in using watercolour pencils of course I have also added a little glitter to the berries as well! I have matted the image onto circles cut using my trusty, previously gushed over, circle cutter. The top circle is a Craftwork Cards Christmas circle greeting matted onto green Bazzill, the bottom circle is another Craftwork cards greeting but I have cut it down using one if my nestabilities, I have stuck both of these onto the card using silicone glue (which is a new one and I am very unhappy as it doesn't smell like salt and vinegar crisps like my last one did!). The final green circle has been put through a winter Cuttlebug embossing folder.
