Charge of the light brigade

Hi Folks!

I've decided my blog posts are a bit like buses, nothing for ages and then suddenly two at once!

Good news - I've made another Christmas card - that makes 3! Once again, I was inspired by this fab sketch at Sketch Saturday:
Here's my card:

I had to drag out the daylight bulbs for piccy taking, hate these gloomy afternoons! Here's the close up - not sure I'd fancy these two sorting out my Christmas lights!!

Details -
The light brigade - Penny Black
Colouring - Promarkers and glossy accents on the light bulbs
Papers - Stampin' Up
Sentiment - Crafter's Companion
