Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 102

This is the first time I have participated in the Penny Black challenge and when I was looking through my Penny Black stamps I rediscovered this lovely Christmas Cat stamp and decided that it would be a good idea to make some  of my challenge cards as Christmas cards and take off some of the pressure later in the year - I am always making Christmas cards right up to the last minute! Here is the card;

I coloured the stamped image with Copics, cut the frame with my Woodware chippies frames and added three gems. The theme for the challenge is lots of dots so I have used a green spotty background paper and tied on a red ribbon - my first Christmas card made this year and it's only May!
