Time Out and Embellishments reminder

Hi everyone. I'm back as Guest Designer with a reminder for the Time Out challenge. The theme is Embellishments with the option of One Layer and the sponsor is Birch Press Design.




I've not gone for the one layer option with this card. The image is a Sugar Nellie stamp coloured with my usual Promarkers and with a Wink of Stella on the cake and a clear Sakura gel pen on the cherries. The paper is from my snippets box and I added some card candi and a stamped (possibly LOTV) sentiment. The ribbon is the last little piece that I had been saving and it seemed just perfect for this card.


I shall enter this in the following challenges ~

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use your snippets'

Seize the Birthday challenge 'anything goes'

Addicted to Stamps and More challenge 'make your mark'

As You Like It challenge 'favourite animal'
Gosh what a hard one this was as I love lots of animals but I finally settled on hedgehogs.... firstly because there are so many fabulous hedgie stamps out there and secondly because it reminds me of a family of baby hedgehogs we had in our garden a few years back. I'm not sure what had happened to the parents but the three little ones used to visit in the daytime and one in particular was always getting himself in trouble and was constantly being rescued!




Thanks for calling by today and it would be lovely if you could take the time to pop over to Time Out and see the fabulous creations from the design team. If you want to join in the fun you still have until April 24th.

I love the design of this "not quite" CAS card Andrea. The panel of paper really brings it all together. It's lovely to see this adorable hedgehog at AYLI, so thank you for joining us. Hedgehogs are an animal that I have never been fortunate to see in real life, so it was lovely to read about your visits from some xx
