My 1st Penny Black challenge

Well I recently purchased some Penny Black images as I wanted to enter their new challenge blog. This is my 1st entry and I'm rather chuffed with it. The challenge over on Penny Black this week was "let it snow" theme, and as I am rather stressed out at the minute with the kids being of on school holiday, I decided to make a card for my hubby, that him and I can go and hibernate ALONE ..... don't think this will happen some how. On the image I used my cosmic shimmers to colour in the umbrella and the pressies, water coloured the hedgehogs themselves and used a clear shimmer glitter for the snow effect, if you look closely enough they have even got snow on their spines (so cute). I also used some funky fibers, punched snowflakes, some heart punches and lastly my letters using my cricut expression. Hope you like my card as I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Any comments are gratefully appreciated. Karen
