Penny Black Challenge

As usual with all the challenges I go for I am a bit late for this one!!  Nevertheless I love the PB stuff and this week there is a rather yummy blog hop going on that everybody should get involved with!
This is my card – the image is (of course) a Penny Black hedgehog!  As you can see I have been having fun with a new snowflake punch that I bought the other day as well as adding white brads that I bought although I think that they may be a little bit too big for this particular card.

Mind you, before I put the brads on, I had taken the photograph below because I thought that I was finished.

I thought that it was finished, but as soon as I saw the photograph I knew that it was missing something – so I added the six white brads – but like I said, they could be a bit smaller.  It’s funny though – for someone who hardly used embellishments at first, I really am using them all the time now – ribbons, brads, punched images, flowers, and that thing that I can NEVER remember the name of……eyelets!!

You have one more day to get involved with this particular Penny Black Challenge – so pull out those stamps and get going!!
