Golfing Hedgehog

This card has been made using the sketch over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where they are celebrating the 100th week of the challenge! They are having a Blog Hop and there are lots of prizes up for grabs. Talking of blog hops, they are also having one at the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week where the theme is Birthdays/Celebration. Stamp Something also have the birthday theme. This card also fits in with the Colour Create Challenge where the colours this week are cream, aqua, brown and khaki. I am also entering this for the Stampin for the Weekend challenge where they would like to see male cards this week.

For my card, I've coloured the Penny Black image with pastel pencils, I find these much more effective for animal or nature stamps, the edges have been inked with tea dye distress ink. I've used some dies by Nellie Snellen, a X Cut scallop border punch and some Fiskars squeeze punches for the circles. The papers are from the Hampton Collection by Crate Paper.

Bye for now.

Lovely card and I do like PB stamps although at present I own very few - that should be remedied I think!! Those die cut shapes are good too - another temptation.
