the penny black wood stamp a great surprise! consists of a series of three hedgies but i masked off the centre one since i only needed two for this card. i painted with twinkling H2Os, stamped the lawn fawn sentiment and used some colourful birthday papers for this fun card following this tutorial. as i was making it i thought i’d never do another but when it was finished i changed my mind.

i’m playing along with these challenges:

i painted with twinkling H2Os, used the adorable penny black hugs! mice and two penny black dies: heart string and sending love. i rarely make cards this bright, but it’s summer and i was in the mood to use my least favourite colour – orange, usually reserved for autumn card making.

the current prompt at the jingle belles is Ombre Colors of Christmas and this beautiful inspiration photo:

i started off by painting ombre die cut presents, but decided they were better suited to a birthday card, so that’s what it ended up as. i experimented with a few colour combinations and my twinkling H2Os until i was happy with my choices for a christmas card. as usual, i used my twinks on this penny black die that i inlaid against the snowflake embossed background.

i’d also like to submit this to:
ABC Christmas Challenge where the theme is ‘N is for No Rules!’
Simon Says work it wednesday challenge: wafer thin dies.
