J&C Creations - A Penny Black Birthday!

Good Morning!
Today's card is another for this week's theme at J&C CREATIONS BLOG which is all about Penny Black! This card is featuring something that when you first think of Penny Black is most likely to pop into your mind ... a hedgehog!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
SIMON SAYS STAMP & SHOW - EMBRACE THE OLD
(This was 1 of my very first stamps!)
WILD ORCHID CRAFTS - ANYTHING GOES



 The sentiment is also a stamp by Penny Black. To create the card I simply followed a layout with some floral Design Papers that I thought would work well with the hedgehog. Embellishing as usual once I was happy with everything.

 I'l tell you now that this was my first ever Penny Black stamp when I started card-making 5 years ago .....
 I now have around the 200 mark but in my defence it's because they are all adorable!
