Penny Black Christmas Usher

Good evening! Thought I would make a start on chrissy cards, and I had this penny Black image coloured up a long time ago (pre-copics!!! coloured with my prisma colour pencils).  The papers are from a simple stories pad called Handmade Holiday.  The tree is cut from a magnolia die and the bauble is cut from a Martha Stewart punch (cut three baubles and one piece of JAC paper... fold the coloured baubles in half and stick two to the JAC paper, then the third gets stuck in the centre of the two others)  I have decorated the tree with some sparkle fibres. The image is  cut out with a spellbinders nestie Labels ten.

you can see from the pic below that I have layered the skirt part- stamp three images, cut the skirt out on two of them, colour up and use some paper toll adhesive to add the dimension.  I have then added some micro beads to the edge of the skirt.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Creative Inspriations: Christmas in September
Just keep on creating: Christmas is just around the corner

Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe XOX Tania.
