Penny Black Challenge 183- Happy Birthday

This week on the Penny Black Challenge blog - the challenge is to CASE an inspiration card.  After seeing the inspiration (below my card)...you would of thought a CASE would be easy....but this actually took my a while!  But....here's the result:

Of course I used a Penny Black image colored with my prismas.  I have this corrugated material that I dug out and then die cut a few Sizzix stars.   I popped up the present three times, so the card is pretty thick, but it gives a nice impression.  I covered the dots and the bow with glossy accents.

Here's a close up:


Here's the inspiration card:



Thanks for your visit!

Awww, what an adorable card, Maria! I just LOVE that little hedgehog. Of course having a real hedgehog as a pet does make me a bit partial to the critters. ;) Love the patriotic color scheme and love the corrugated paper. Adds such great depth to the design, as does the layers on the present. This just really makes me smile.

Love your card with the red, white and blue, just perfect with the white behind the stars and how love how you did the present, popping it up for the dimension. Cute stuff. Sounds like you are having a mellow winter compared to last year :)
