Multi Challenge Card

Well, I sat down last night to make a card and realised that I didn't have a huge amount of time left in the evening to make all of the cards I wanted to make, so I decided to combine a few blog challenges into one card!  And here is the finished result.  I apologise for the not-so-great quality of the photograph, unfortunately the light was either too dim or too bright for my camera last night.

One of the rules on the Daring Cardmakers challenge was to make a card with 'flap(s)' and to prove that my little Penny Black hedgehog is sitting on a flap... here is a photograph with the flap open.  The main rule for the Penny Black challenge was obviously to use a Penny Black image but also to only use monochromatic brown(s), so I stamped the image with brown Brilliance ink and then coloured the image in with the same ink and a little water.  I also stamped the sentiment under the flap with the same ink to tie it all in together neatly.

I hope you liked my card, but if you want to have a go yourself, there's still some time remaining to enter the challenges, just click on the link to the right of the screen in 'Other blogs I like to visit' and it'll take you right there. Good luck!

This card has been included in the following Blog Challenges:
Monochromatic Brown, Penny Black Saturday Challenge
