Festive Hedgies

Afternoon All!
Are you starting to feel festive yet? How's your Christmas shopping going? And have you put pen to paper to get that long list of cards written? Well, ready or not I thought I'd help get you in the mood with this little boxed card I made using the Penny Black 12 Days of Christmas stamp set.
I've created a star card - with a pair of hedgie carollers on the front - to showcase the stamp images and for a festive feel used red and green card. The lacy edges were made using a Martha Stewart punch and each panel was cut with a Spellbinders die before inking with red and green ink and colouring the images with Promarkers. The red mirri card helped to add a bit of glitz, checked gingham ribbon tied the star card together and I made a matching box decorated with pearl gems and the partridge in a pear tree image from the stamp collection on the lid.

I hope you like my little card as much as I enjoyed making it. The challenge over at Penny Black and More this month is for 'All Creatures Great and Small' so I think this set of characters should fit in just perfectly! Why not pop over and enter - they have some lovely prizes to be won and fab inspiration from the Design Team.
I would also like to enter my card into this week's 'I Love Promarkers' challenge which is 'Anything Goes' and the 'Christmas Crackers' Yule themed challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly'.
Anyway, thanks for looking.
Best wishes and bye for now
