Hark the herald angels sing

I’ve unearthed another Penny Black card for today’s post.  I really must use them more, especially these older style stamps as they are so gorgeous.  I kept the card quite simple as I wanted the image to stand out, isn’t the detail on her gown just amazing!

I made a gatefold card for a change, I should have taken a better picture of the inside – too late now as it’s been with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine for months now.

As always the embellies used are from Wild Orchid CraftsPearls, 25mm hybrid tea rose and 15mm roses were used.  The sentiment is from a Jayne Nestorenko set from last year’s Adorables release.  The sentiments in those sets are fab, I have used them so much on my Xmas cards this year.  The gorge papers are from Nitwit Collections Cookin Cookies.

And now I am dashing out the door to work, late again lol.
