Penny Black Challenge & Sketch Saturday


This is the first time I have joined in with these challenges & I will definetly be back to both of them!!
I don't know if I'll be able to keep up with them all when I get back to work but I'll give it ago!
I have followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday and the Penny Black Saturday challenge was to use Black, White & 1 other color so I went for orange. No idea why as I would usually go for pink but maybe its because the sun is shining!!
I hav used a craft tonic card blank, black * orange card stock from the Paper Mill, Orange paper by HOTP & black & white paper from my stash (no idea where I got this from oops!), ribbon from my stash X-Cut large & small flower punch, Papermania black jewels & greeting stamp, & Penny Black Gift for You stamp colored with Pro Markers.

This cute hedgehog image lends itself to this challenge and I love the use of the orange to make this card pop. Nice job. Sweet card.
