Merry, Merry Christmas

Some time ago I die cut the PTI hexagon from black self adhesive fun foam & added Elizabeth Craft purple glitter.  I had in mind attaching it to designer paper.  Turns out the current Merry Monday challenge is to use purple, white & silver, so I hunted for a Christmas paper to use.  
Nothing in my stash would work, so instead I stamped one of my favorite Penny Black stamps (poinsettia script) in Delicata Silvery Shimmer.  The Merry die cut is also PB & is stacked 5 high & covered in Diamond Glaze.  
The sentiment is from PB's yuletide greetings & is also stamped in the Silvery Shimmer ink. Finished off with 3 silver sequins.  Feels great to use that die cut & have one more Christmas card ready to mail.  I'm also entering Word Art WednesdayHappy Little Stampers Christmas ChallengeTime Out. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
