These are a few of my favourite things ...

... for my CHNC challenge 190.

For this card I used some Hunkydory card mounted on to silver mirror card with a coordinating strip and sentiment circle. The image is one of my favourite Penny Black stamps 'fantasy' inked with Elsybells sugar candy pigment inkpad (one of the best white ones I've ever come across) and heat embossed with detail white powder. So I used one of my favourite stamps, shiny things and heat embossing - oh, and purple is involved too!

This is also for:
