Penny Black challenges

Hi everyone and welcome to Elf's Crafting Life...

A big hello to some new followers, it's great that you have chosen to follow my blog and I hope that you enjoy what you read.

Today's card is being entered into 3 blog challenges.

Sir Stampalot Challenge ~Autumn breezes, buttons and bows

Penny Black at Allsorts ~ Colours of Autumn

Penny Black Saturday Challenge ~ 2 or more Penny Black images

This is my second entry into Penny Black at allsorts I entered this card in the first week.  The team at Penny Black at Allsorts are kindly drawing winners each week as well as their monthly winner, which is great 4 changes to win!!

This is my entry to all of the challenges

Materials used:

Cute Hedgehog image and 'For You' sentiment from Penny Black ~ Tiny Wishes T for Transparent range
Bee's with envelope from ~ Hugs T for Transparent range

I stamped the above images using a Versafine ink pad and coloured using water colours.
I then matted and layered the card using various papers ~ K&Co Studio K Teal Plaid flat paper, Bazzill ~ Quick sand & Carob, the orange leaf paper is from my crafty stash (sorry I can't remember the brand).

Ribbon ~ Celebrate ribbon by the spool.  Flowers and button from crafty stash.

Sorry everyone I was going to upload a close up of the cute hedgehog image but Blogger is not working very well tonight.

Anyway this is my challenge entry for the following 3 blog challenges ~

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, please feel free to leave a comment.

Love Em x

Edited 14-10.  Yeah!! I have finally been able to add the close up image of this cute hedgehog x  I have also entered this card into a 3rd challenge (blog post has been edited with links). I hope it still counts as it is a new card from my latest blog post and not back linked to an old project ~ fingers crossed.
