Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Funky Christmas!

Thanks to everyone who took part in last weeks monochrome challenge, I loved seeing all the inventive creations as I blog-hopped this week!! So onto this week's theme, we have 'Funky Christmas!' And there is a brilliant prize on offer, a Rachelle Anne Miller stamp and a Sarah Kay stamp kindly donated by Krafty Crafts.
So here is my card!
I made this card a few weeks back, I had a relaxing evening just watching the telly and crafting away, hand stitching, sewing on beads and adding little bits and pieces, and before I knew it my card was finished and 5 hours had passed! Needless to say little blog-hopping went on that night due to being fully engrossed in my card lol!
Well, the image was coloured with Pro Markers, I tried to give the animals a bit of a roughed up effect so I went over the colour with a blender pen (not sure if I like it or not??) and all the other bits and bobs are from my stash!



Here are some other views to show the beads and glitter a little better (hopefully!!)
Wow! You must check out the DT work this week, it's outstanding and very funky!!
Thanks for looking as always, have a great day!!
Love Becky xx
