Royal Mail

Good morning Everyone, 
Well I'm trying to increase my stash of Christmas cards. I've booked a stall at the school Christmas fair and at this rate I'll have nothing to sell!!
I've used a Penny Black stamp called 'Royal Mail'for todays card. it's actually the stamp I used for the very first card I posted on my blog!
I've coloured the image with my promarkers and added lots of glitter!!
I love White on White cards, but whenever I attempt them they never come out as intended. The picture in my head is so different!!
The poinsettias are a Marianne Creatables die and I've added buttons to the centres. I finished off with some ribbon and pearls from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Buttons & Bows
Sweet Stampin Challenge - White on White
The Squirrel & the Fox - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Put a Stamp on it
Penny Black & more - Early Christmas Makes (2nd entry)
Sparkles Christmas challenge - Sparkle & Bling (2nd Entry)
Holly Jolly Christmas - Flowers

Thanks for visiting my little blog today and for all your lovely comments.

This is delightful sweetie. Gorgeous colouring. I always fluster about doing white on white but yours is perfect. I am worrying that I will not get all my Christmas cards made in time as I send a lot. Goodness know what I would do if I was making enough to sell as well. Phew!!!
