Christmas Card Club - Card 19/2019 - Anything Goes

Hello and Happy Sunday Everyone

I hope you are having a lovely weekend. Many thanks for taking the time to check out today's post - your visit is much appreciated.

Only one card for the Christmas Card Club from me today and as the challenge is 'anything goes' it was made using an old, but a favourite, stamp from Penny Black.
I admit that the topper was stamped up some time ago but somehow got forgotten until searching through my box of bits and bobs, looking for inspiration, I unearthed it again. Adhering all those tiny green gems was a labour of love but, I think, well worth the effort. I could have, maybe should have, used red gems, for a more festive look, but I seem to be on a green and white thing at the moment so green gems it had to be.

Supplies used:
- a plain white A6 card base
- green glitter card, for layering, from a Mixed Media Pad by American Crafts, 'Dear Lizzy New Day' 
- white watercolour card for topper
- stamps: Penny Black's 'Berry Red, Snow White' and the greeting from 'Wonder Collection'; where the leaf stamp is from is long forgotten
- ink pads: Memento 'Tuxedo Black' and Versafine ' Olympia Green' 
- embellishments;  tiny green gems from Anita's. 
- liquid adhesive; Anita's Tacky Glue

That's it for CCC today but I hope you will pop over to see what my teammates have created for today's theme - you'll find a list of their names and links on my right sidebar - as always they are so much more creative than me.
