Relaxing Hedgie

Hi and today's card is for Penny Black Saturday where the challenge this week is to follow a sketch. I've used a cute hedgehog relaxing in his hammock (thanks Tania) which is pencil coloured and blended with Sansodor. Background papers are all by Pebbles Inc., lovely flower, travel stripe and travel dot and the white card has been embossed with the CB swiss dots folder. I punched flowers with an EK success retro flower punch and moulded them with a ball tool for some shape then added black half pearls for the centres. The swirl corners are cut with a sizzix die. What I've ended up with here is a bit busy for me but I do love these papers!

Back soon,
Chris

Hi Chris,

Very cute card Chris! I love your coloring and enjoyed watching all your cards on your blog (again :)).

It must be amazing to draw so well that they have been turned into stamps! I really love the daisies and flowers and ordered them today! Can't wait till they arrive! :):):)

Have a good day and lots of inspiration!
