Twas the Night Before Christmas...with Penny Black

I made this card several weeks ago and never got around to posting (I have tons of cards I haven't posted). I'm having a difficult time getting into the Christmas Spirit. After reading the many blogs I follow, others seem to be having the same issue. I'm not sure what the problem is this year, but I figured making Christmas cards might help. So, I've been coloring and crafting away.
I love this Penny Black image. Reminds me of "Twas the night before Christmas."
I started by stamping the image on Copic X-Press It cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the sweet mouse image with Copic Markers.

The Stampin' Up sentiment is stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and punched using Stampin' Up's Word Window punch and layered on a piece of Soft Suede punched with the Modern Label punch.
The sentiment inside the card is from Stampin' Up as well.

I did notice I should have inked the edges of the cardstock. The white core is showing on some of the patterned papers. Oh well, next time.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,
Dana Desmond
