Summery Christmas card!

Hiya! Excuse the odd title but I've made a Christmas card today and I think it looks quite summery! I've had this Elzybells stamp for ages and never used it although since I've bought it I've had the idea to colour it black and turn it into a silhouette. When I saw what this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge was, I decided to give it a go! The background is just bands of colour with Copics with the buildings in various greys and blacks, then I covered the whole thing with a Versamark ink pad and sparkly embossing powder. I'm quite chuffed!
It's for these challenges-
Sketch and Stash Challenge - any sketch, I've chosen week 1(sort of - sorry it's not very accurate!) and I've used this neglected stamp
Winter Wonderland - Silhouette
Totally Gorjuss- Bling It On
Simon Says Stamp - Embossing
Paper Sundaes - Sparkle, pearls & yellow
Thanks for looking - I'll be back tomorrow with my Truly Scrumptious card. Have a lovely evening!
...very sparkly!
Supplies-
Image - from Elzybells
Colouring - Copics & sparkle embossing powder
Paper - Basic Grey 'Ambrosia'
Pearls - stash
Ribbon - Hobbycraft
Sentiment - made in the PC, printed onto Safmat film
