Pile of pressies

After completing my flexmarker chart with my new pen colours and undoing all the packaging and finding homes for my lovely new stash I only had time to make one card yesterday and had no time for blogging and commenting. I did use a few bits of my new stash on my card though. The image is an old Penny Black who has been coloured with Promarkers. I used DI Victorian Velvet round the edges and Sakura Golden Star pen for highlights on the pressies. The gingham strips and sentiment are Craftwork Cards. Papers are some new Marianne Merry Little Christmas. I love the rich autumnal shades of these papers. Velvet ribbon from the Hobby House, embellies from The Works.
Challenges:
Willow Sketchie Great sketch with a great Promarker prize
PapertakeCreature Comforts
2 Sisters Gingham or plaid
Scrapbook Sisters Autumnal colours
