'cool company' Christmas card

With Christmas fast approaching I have another card to share today.
It's only the 3rd Christmas card I've made so far, so I'd need to get my skates on!
 
I've been trying to use up some of my forgotten/older stash for my cards this year.
I have no room to store anything new!
 
Supplies used
White card ~cut and scored to A6 size
Patterned Paper ~ DCWV Christmas multi stack (6x6")
Red card ~ cut with Nestabilites labels 8 die
Green card ~ embossed with Cuttlebug snowflake folder
Stamp ~ Penny Black 3743K 'cool company'
Ink ~ Memento black
Coloured with Copics
Red/White ribbon, Christmas twine & Green star button
Stickles 'star dust'
for the dots of snow in the background, but they haven't shown up too well in the photo.
 
 
....continuing on the Christmas Countdown....
I hope you've been enjoying the lovely festive projects shared by the DT
We're now on day 10 and Morag has a winter scrapbook page here
 
 
and that's it from me today!
I hope you're all enjoying your weekend :)
I have an appointment at the hospital this morning for a nerve conduction study
for Carpal Tunnel syndrome.
I'm dreading it a bit because I don't know what to expect and it sounds possibly painful??
Maybe it won't be as bad as I think :)
I'll let you know how it goes....
 
All the best
Sarah xx
