Hedgie Carollers

Evening All!
Now that the nights are drawing in its really hard to take a good a pic where the colours look like they do in real life -or is it just me!
Anyway, this little card actually looks more vibrant 'in the flesh' but hopefully you can get the gist. The papers are the latest Henbury Lane Christmas collection and a little piece of Anna Griffins'. I flit between liking lovely wintery blues and aquas or traditional reds and greens for my Christmas cards - tonight these little Penny Black Hedgies - coloured with Promarkers - made me feel all traditional!
The sketch this week was a great one from the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and I punched the flowers and holly leaves before adding gems and a sentiment from the Forever Friends selection. Hope you like it!
Bye for now

I would also like to enter this in the Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge which this month is to 'Punch Away', Totally Gorjuss - Wild Thing challenge and The Secret Crafter - Anything Goes. I also thought my card fitted in with the colour scheme on the Passion for Promarkers Challenge which was reds, white and green.
