A Sunny Hedgehog Birthday Card .....

I've been waiting for better light to take photographs, but alas, had to do this with a snowy background this afternoon.  This bright and sunny birthday card has a cute Penny Black stamp which I coloured with Copics and enhanced with Stardust Stickles.  The sentiment was computer generated onto the digital background paper.  I'm entering this into Papertake Weekly cut it out challenge and also I followed the sketch in this weeks Penny Black challenge and used digital background papers 'chalky lemon' from the Clipart Fairy. To mask the join I used yellow twill stripe ribbon from here.   The coloured Penny Black image and the toning yellow card background were cut with nestabilities on the sizzix machine.  I added a wide yellow satin ribbon and a bow plus a couple of golden yellow fancy pins - all ribbons, pins and stickles from here

I printed out an extra sheet of the background paper and punched paper flowers which I shaped by nipping the petals, then fastened two flowers together with a yellow brad after which plenty of stardust stickles were added.

Hi Mary, Such a lovely sunny card and such a sweet image.

We've had our first fall of snow here this morning, just enough to make everything look pretty!
