Penny Black Challenge!

Hereis my card for the Penny Black Challenge this week and the theme was stars and stripes and of course a Penny Black image. I have put some dark turquoise card onto the base card and then I have used some Dovecraft papers from last years range which are stripes. Then I have used a christmas stamped image of these cute little hedgehogs on their sledgeand coloured them with Whisper pens and mounted it onto some silver mirri board and the again onto the turquoise card and stuck down with some sticky pads. Then I have added some wooden silver stars, which I picked up after xmas last year in the B&Q sale and knew they would come in useful some time. I have then added a red christmas sentiment, again I have stuck this down with sticky pads to give a raised effect. To finish it off I have added a couple of flowers from the Joanna Sheen site and secured it with a brad out of the new Dovecraft range. Thanks for looking.
