Silver and snowflakes....

What a cool combination... and that's what the challenge is over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog... I have an adorable Penny Black hedgehog Christmas stamp and I used that to make my card for this challenge.

Peace on Earth

I stamped my hedgies in Memento Black ink and coloured with Copics.  I then matted onto some silver mirror card.  I used this card to punch some snowflakes and used a Die-Namics die to make the swirls.  I also silver embossed the sentiment.  I added the swirls in the corner with some white and silver snowflakes and a silver gem.  All mounted on to a textured card base.

I am also entering this into Penny Black & more @ Allsorts.  Their challenge is All Creatures Great and Small... You should go see their challenge... you can now enter the challenges even if you don't have any Penny Black Stamps.  They have some really neat prizes too..

And also for Die Cut Diva's Christmas Challenge.

My week is flying by.... been busy at work but not too stressful.  Looking forward to Stamp Group this weekend.  And my son's birthday is on Sunday... my baby will be 23.  Doesn't time fly...
Take care 
Dawn

I love this silver mat Dawn! Really looks sharp and highlights your image so well. At first glance it almost looks like a "frame" for your mice!

So adorable, Dawn! Love the silvery frame with the pretty snowflakes in the corners! Good to know that the Allsorts challenges let you use other stamps now. Sounds like you're getting more used to being at work - I'm glad. Hugs! :)
