Inside & Out

This is the card I've made for my Nan's birthday next month, to go with the boxed set of Penny Black cards I shared on Thursday. I've used several more Penny Black images...all hedgehogs this time...on a gatefold card. The ones on the front are from the 'Critter Party' set. The papers are from the freebie 'Quite Contrary' pad by My Mind's Eye, and the sentiment is a stamp from the CCSR set by Papermania. I distressed all of the edges with my distressing tool, and added some ribbon to the front of the card to keep it closed.


Here's a better view of the front of the card:


I used more papers from the same pad to decorate the inside...and another Penny Black image...'Party Pooped!':


Challenges for this card:
I'll be back later with my DT card for this week's Pile It On! Challenge...
