Penny Black Challenge #3

This card is also 'one I made earlier' for a friend who had just found a nest of baby hedgelings in her garden. (Was made for Carol, Funky Hand design team mate. See her blog for pics of the hoglets, and some awesome cards, to boot!)

The only hedgie stamp I had was this Penny Black 'Xmas Kiss'. Hedgie is holding some holly on the stamp, so had to conceal that somehow! By co-incidence, it matches the colours required for this week's challenge on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog... pink, brown and green! hehe :o)

Papers: From the Shabby Saturday download, available on the Funky Hand web-site, HERE.
Stamp: 'Xmas Kiss' from Penny Black; 'Elegant Flourishes' from Rhonna Farrer. Coloured using Prismacolor pencils, with Zest-It blending solution and stumps.
Scalloped mount created using Fiskars scalloped-edge scissors
Ribbon and brads from stash
