Countdown to christmas

I am a complete Christmas- aholic and usually start getting set for the Christmas season around September. This year however my hubby and I are trying to chill out a bit on it and have promised ourselves not to get too excited too early and cause 'excess-Christmas-itis!'
Of course the exception to this rule is card making and present buying because it just makes good sense to be well prepared with those.
This little Christmas card is stamped with a penny black stamp and coloured with promarkers. I added glossy accents to the baubles to give them a bit of shine.  I embossed some red bazzill card with a sizzix Christmas embossing folder. I lightly sanded the top to bring out the greeting and glittered the corner with stickles. The other embossing folder in the set was the stockings which I used to emboss some scraps of Christmas papers. I then cut out the stockings and 'hung' them on red and white twine.

This card is destined for the following challenges;
Penny black - anything christmas
Allsorts- Christmas
Penny Black Saturday- embossing
Simon says stamp - glossy
