Two Hedgehogs

I'm now just 1 card away from my goal of 150! Although the ticker banner has sort of had a bit of a turn and can't cope! This card is part of an order from one of my cousins (hello Claire!) and this has to be one of my favourite Penny Black images!

It's been coloured with Aquamarkers and glitter glue and I've used one of my Nesties to cut the shape - the next size up was too large so I've cut the red border myself. I've embossed the spotty backing paper (Happy Happy Birthday cd from Funky Hand) and the red is an old card blank that I've cut up as it was too thin to use for its intended purpose.

Sentiment is computer generated and the organza ribbon and silver chipboard snowflake are from my stash.
