Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 25

Well you certainly enjoyed last week's challenge and I loved seeing all your Funky Christmas cards...now you may not be quite so happy this week....I found it hard too....but hey that is why they are called challenges...don't you think.

The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is....

No Patterned Paper
shock horror.....I knew it.....I can hear the sharp intakes of breath from here....we all love our patterned papers and just like me you probably have mountains of the stuff in your stash .....some I use all the time.....others are just too gorgeous to use and some don't know why I bought them in the first place and will probably never use them but us crafters can't throw anything away. I kept my card very simple this week....well didn't have an option did I.......but you know what.....I rather like it.....and this gorgeous hedgie image doesn't need fancy papers to fuss it all up...

Cardstock: Bazzill
Image: Penny Black...Royal Mail
Ribbon: American Crafts
Holly: Sizzix Die
Pom poms: from my stash
And the prize this week for one lucky winner chosen at random
is this scrummylicious Embellishment Kit from Poppicrafts
donated by Tracie
Can't wait to see what you all come up with this week...I just know that you will rise to the challenge and be your usual creative selves.......will be popping over to have a look.....Hugs Kath xxxxxxxx
