Children decorating Christmas tree outdoor ...

... this is the name of one of the stamps kindly supplied by another of today's sponsors over at my CHNC challenge 112: let it snow again!

I deliberately left the image black and white (stamped with memento tuxedo black) and mounted on to silver mirror card. The paper is Echo park very merry Christmas and the ribbon with silver (not black as they look here) snowflakes is from stash. The sentiment was computer generated and printed, again mounted on silver mirror card (isn't this so awful to photograph!).
