My first ever Challenge entry - I hope!

I have decided to have a go and enter this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge, I hope it works. I've also entered it into Allsorts challenge for something Irish/ lucky or just green.

I just love this Hedgie called A Smile For You 1021K from Penny Black and bought it with Mother's Day in mind. Whilst doing a version in red, I also decided to do this one in greens to fit in with PB Challenge for St. Patrick's day.
I stamped and coloured 2 separate images with Promarkers using Apple, Tea Green, Ivory, Blush, Cool Grey 1, Sandstone and Terracotta.
The dress and hat were stamped onto some beautiful Japanese handmade papers.
I think maybe a few small leaves and some gems in the bottom corner would go well but I didn't want to make it too fussy. Perhaps I'll try adding them on MIL's red version.


  1. Hello, and welcome to blogland! Well done on your first challenge entry. Your card is gorgeous and perfect for this weeks challenge at Penny Black, thanks for joining in.
