Trimming the Tree

The adorable little hedgehog on today's card is of course by Penny Black...it's from the 'Holly Jolly' set. The papers are from the 'Countdown to Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye...as is the sentiment...which I cut from the sheet of text paper. The snowflakes were cut using Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs Creatables dies, the brads are by American Crafts, and I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border. I glittered all the snowflakes, stars and snow with some 'Crystal' Stickles.
