Happy Hedgies sketch saturday



I made this card for today's sketch saturday.
I know I added a little bit too much dazzling diamonds glitter. But I guess it is ok.
The card front is GP white, which I used the swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder on. I adhered an older SU holiday designer paper to the bottom part of the card front, and a strip of figgy puddy by basic grey designer paper. The main image is by Penny Black. I think it is called "sledding". It was colored with blick studio markers which are similar to prismacolor markers. Happy Winter comes from a retired SU stamp set "happy winter". To finish this card off, I used punched out snowflakes and a little ribbon, and like I said added a little too much dazzling diamonds. (couldn't find my bottle of stickles), the card base is chocolate chip.
Stamps: Happy Winter (SU), sledding ? penny black
Paper: choc. chip, GP white, SU and basic grey designer papers
Ink: black
Accessories: blick studio markers, dazzling diamonds with 2way glue pen, martha stewart snowflake punch, chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, swiss dot embossing cuttlebug folder, big kick
Thanks for looking.
