When 2 Became 1....Not the spice girls song....Challenges!

This card is for the CPS and Penny Black Saturday challenges. For the Penny Black challenge you had to decorate the inside of the card and for CPS you had to follow the following sketch: I kind of twisted it and took another angle on the sketch but am really pleased with "my new idea!" and and am looking forward to trying it in different ways. This is my rather twisted adaptation from the front ......

& this is how it stands up.....I thought this was quite novel (nothing like blowing your own trumpet!), I'm sure I could tweak it so it would stand up straighter ........

I have used my new hedgy stamp again along with Doodlebug Christmas paper and Stampin Up bright green & red card stock. The circle and scallop were made using my nesties and the greeting is a rub on. Finally I added the Doodlebug button and threaded a tiny weeny strip of green coordinating card through the sew holes? (I'm sure there is another name for them?).

I also had to decorate the inside for the PB challenge, you know me like to keep it simple......

I just used the Penny Black "I wish it could be Christmas every day" stamp, and I really believe in this sentiment because I would love it to be Christmas everyday! I have already been playing my Christmas music.........

Finally I hope you like my "New Look" blog and how my hubby as made it look like i have been biting bits out of the chocolates!!!!
