Penny Black Hedgies

My card this evening I am entering into a few challenges.  The first challenge is Sketch Saturday which of course is this fabulous sketch.  I really enjoyed using this one, all my favourite sketches seem to have circles in them.  I am also entering my card into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which this week is 'on the beach'.  Now I know you are going to say this isn't very beachy but everytime I see this stamp 'head over heels' it reminds me of when the kids were little and going to Ainsdale beach at the weekends where they spent all the time doing 'rolly polly's' down the sand dunes so I hope it will be accepted as an entry.


I have coloured the cute hedgies with Promarkers.  The papers are Stamping Up.  I have cut the large circle with the X Cut Shape Cutter and embossed with Swiss Dots folder.  The yellow and pink flowers have been recycled from an old birthday card I received.  Swirls are a cuttlebug die cut.  Charm and gem from stash.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

One Stop Crafts - Summer Fun
Fab 'n' Funky - Spotty, Dotty and Stripes
PB at Allsorts Challenge - Glitter and Glitz
