Good morning to you all and I hope you're enjoying your weekend.
Today I want to start by saying a massive 'Thankyou' to all of you fabulous crafters out there who give me so much inspiration as it's only down to you that I've made this card. Let me explain.... at one time I would have been very nervous about putting spots and stripes together and as for daring to colour an animal, well no chance there. When I had finished this card I realised just how much I have learnt and how much you wonderful bloggers have helped and inspired me and also those of you who host challenges have dared me to try new things.
So here is the card I made using an adorable Sugar Nellie stamp called 'Sweet Success'. Now if you read their web page I think they have the description wrong as I'm pretty sure it should read 'and girls', don't you? Now this is the first time I have coloured a hedgie, which I did with Promarkers and added Sakura glaze pen on the fruit. I used QuicKutz Nesting Frame 8 to cut out and layer the image and the papers are Dovecraft 'Back to Basics III'. The flowers are from my stash with a Memory Box 'Chloe Stem' die tucked behind them and some card candi on the flower centres. The ribbon and brad are also from my stash and the sentiment was free with a magazine some time ago.
