Green & Grey Christmas (better photo now added !)

Yet another Christmas card to share with you today folks !  Well, it is that time of year again and I'm busy trying to get all my cards made in time to send out, so here's another one.

Our challenge theme over on Cute Card Thursday this week is to use the colour combo Green and Grey and the prize sponsor is Alota Rubber Stamps.

I've had this cute sledging hedgehogs image in my box of stamped images for ages, I don't know who the stamp is by, so if anyone can enlighten me, I'd be grateful ! (amended - this is definitely a Penny Black image)

The image is coloured with Copics, with Glamour Dust over Glossy Accents on the hat trims and as snow.  I used a snowflake flurry stamp from a set by Inkadinkado and Memento Cottage Ivy ink to stamp on the basecard creating a background, and a Cuddly Buddly sentiment which I embossed with a metallic green embossing powder.  The image is layered over some mat silver (grey) card and I used the same card to punch out the tiny snowflakes.  I used one of my new Memory Box dies to cut out the lacy medallions from green cardstock.  I'm just loving these dies right now, they produce such pretty and delicate diecuts.

I hope you've enjoyed today's card, check out the challenge details on the CCT blog if you'd like to enter a project yourself.

Smashing card - love those hedgies and your touch of lime too. I'm not sure about the image but they do have the look of Penny Black to me ........?

Happy Thursday
