Rudolph day and I'm late again

Oh dear, Trust me!!! There is so much going on I'm running out of days ATM.
Hi there my crafty friends, Welcome to a super quick post for Sandra's Rudolph Day challenge
Some lovely stamps to win  too :0)
Here is my card



It's a Penny Black stamp, I've used it before but wasn't happy with the result. This time, I stamped it in white brilliance  and then again in Distress pine needles but spread micas in bronze and gold then added loads of bronze and gold Stickles. The background is a torn copy paper mask and direct to paper with brilliance ink again. Thanks for stopping by, Hugs Gay xx
