Hedgehog and Snowball

I am so pleased I found this challenge blog - Stamps and Smiles because last week was the first time I entered, and I won!! So thank you to the DT for picking me!!

This week is another lovely sketch and to add to my growing Christmas box (it is now at the proportions of a cardboard storage box!) I made a Christmas card:

Papers are from the new Blue Christmas wordbook download from Funky Hand - I've used 3 of the complementary A4 papers from it (the third is under the image!) I've coloured the Penny Black image with watercolour paints and added a little glitter glue for sparkly snow.
Grosgrain ribbon is from my stash as too are the pearlescent snowflakes and gems. I've used my Spellbinders Nesties to cut the image out and to layer it as I thought it need a bit more shape.
I doubt very much that lightening will strike twice, but I have enjoyed this challenge and some lovely inspiration from the DT!
