I still need to practice with my pens but I was quite pleased with this attempt. One of me New Year's resolutions was to make an effort to actually use some of the paper I have stashed rather than just looking and stroking..so this is Die Cuts with a View and some hand made embossed paper I have had forever. I distressed the paper edges before adding faux stitching (oh for a little sewing machine!) and layering. The cute Hedgehogs are of course Penny Black and the sentiment is one of a set from Personal Impressions (another sale bargain - I cut the words apart to use side by side as 'with' was originally above 'love' ).
