Penny Black Saturday #130 & Sweet Stop Sketch #85!

Morning! I hope you've had a nice week and not been too disrupted by the snow! We got about 5 inches in the end and because I drive lots on country roads, I had thursday as a snow day and kept snuggled in the warm making cards! The rain is washing it all away now though :-(
I'm back today with my Double DT Saturday cards (on time this week!) Firstly is this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge card, this week we would like to see you Stamp onto Anything but White Card. That could be patterned paper, Kraft card, actate, coloured card etc, the choice is yours! I've stamped this lovely sentiment onto a digi scrapbooking paper which I printed really small, the background paper is also from the same set. I then embossed it with white powder and sprayed all over with Spray'n'Sparkle, a few gems and snowflakes and Stickle bits, et voila! I've shown a squiffy angle photo of the sentiment to show how glittery it is!
This is also for these challenges: ABC Challenge - I for Ice and Snow, Papertake - this sketch and Cute Card Thursday - The Blues.

Sentiment - Joy.Hope by Penny Black
Papers - 'Merry Kissmas' @ Little Dreamer Designs
Snowflakes - Woodware punch
Glitters - Crafters Companion 'Spray'n'Sparkle' Silver & Silver Stickles
Gems - Hobbycraft
Border - Fiskars 'Sunburst' punch
Ribbon - stash

And onto this weeks Sweet Stop Sketches challenge! I loved this fab sketch and I'm pretty chuffed with the card so I made another with the left over scraps, I didn't have enough of the green dotty paper left so I printed the nearest colour Pink Petticoat paper which was Willow. The image is stamped in Distress Ink so when I put the Stickles on it sort of bled out and bit - oops! But I actually don't mind in the end - a happy accident! I've had this clear stamp set for ages and I've never used it! Now that I have I can't see why! Isn't it funny that we're always on the lookout for lovely, shiny new stamps but then there's gorgeous ones right under our noses!
This is also for these challenges: Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes and Stamp Something - Christmas Colours.
