Sledging Hedgies

I made 2 attempts at this card for the
'Sleigh Bells Ring' challenge.

Ths first one is the card above,
and I'm not really happy with it.
I distressed round the stamp with brown ink -
what was I thinking?
And then tried to cover it all up with blue chalk,
and got carried away!
The ribbon isn't straight and neither is the text.
Not good!

So I tried again.
I'm not much happier with my second effort.
I think my mojo has disappeared today!
But it's a simple design that's good
when you have lots of Christmas cards to make.

Stamp - Penny Black, Christmas Critters,
coloured with copics and stickles glitter.
Not sure what make the DP is, it's from last year's stash.
Happy Christmas stamp is Pink Gem
I punched the snowflakes from glitter card
Ribbon from my stash.

The image is adorable and you've coloured it perfectly. I love the blue, love the papers and both styles you've used. Even love the distressing! Gorgeous!
