Penny Black challenge...week 180

Isn't it amazing how many different whites there are out there?  After getting all the elements ready to put together on my card I noticed that the Neenah card that I use for stamping on a quite a different white...stilll it is WHITE and actually stand out from the background.
The little dog is a Penny Black stamp called 'Merry Puppy'...coloured with copics and put onto a nesties.
I've used  a couple of embossing folders, one is the Crafts Too dots and also Cuttlebug Mistletoe, Sizzix Mistletoe die, punches used, Martha Stewart snowflake and fence, both ovals are from Stampin up.
Off now to feed my christmas cake with more brandy and then I am going to tackle the ironing....

Hope you all have a great week end.

Anne

There are indeed lots of different whites out there (blacks too - same problem) but this card is really striking with the cute dog stamp as a spot of colour.
