Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Card Buffet

Good morning!

I have had a Saturday morning to myself so I thought I would make a card for the Penny Black Saturday challenge. I've been really good and made another Christmas card.

The image and sentiment are from the Penny Black T for Transparent set called "Christmas Critters".  I think I might have to go back and give these poor hedgies a few more spikes, they are looking a bit bald! I always find that the photograph of a card will show up all the mistakes I miss looking at the card in real life.

Penny Black Saturday are asking you to choose four items from their "Card Buffet" and I have chosen:-

Ribbon (rikrak along the bottom)
Twine (through tag - this is cord, but I hope it will count!)
Three gems "two on the tag and one below the tag)
Patterned paper (background)

Thanks to the PBSC team for a lovely challenge.

Hugs, Clare xx

p.s. Enjoy your weekend.
