Sledging Hedgies

Hi everyone, a card for Penny Black and Papertake weekly where this week the themes are 'sparkling' and also for Basic Grey and a challenge of Christmas.

For my card I've used a gorgeous PB sledging hedgies image (thanks T x) which is marker coloured, and stickled for highlights. The holly leaf border around the nestie cut oval is made with two Kars punches that are a set. The first punch cuts a flap and the second which you position over the flap is the holly leaf. The flap allows the leaves to slide over the edge of the card. I cut these from green bazzil card and glittered them with gold stickles. The background papers are Basic Grey figgy pudding which have been edge distressed and layered on red bazzil. I sandwiched the satin ribbon between two of the paper layers and the image is mounted on foam tape. Finished off with a sentiment and gem.
