A Hedgehog for you...

I have a friend who LOVES hedgehogs. So when I saw this cute little guy in the new Penny Black set Teddy and Company, I couldn't wait to make a card with him. The sentiment is from the All Wrapped Up set (Flourishes). I just used a Brown Tombow marker to color the sentiment inside the tag, and the hedgehog is colored with copics.

This week for our CCEE Challenge, Charlene sent us supplies.

  • Pink Designer Paper
  • Two Chocolate Brads
  • One pink gemstone brad
  • Two ribbons: One pink & one chocolate
  • One chocolate oval punch & two white oval punches
  • One pink pirouette curly label punch

Charlene’s instructions were that we:

  • must use all or a portion of the designer paper
  • must use either the pink gemstone brad or chocolate brads or both if we liked.
  • must use a portion or all of one of the ribbons or both if we liked.
  • must use either the oval all punch & oval punch shapes together or the curly label punch or both if we liked.
To see what the other girls have come up with, stop by our CCEE Stampers Blog. We'd love to have you participate too. Just follow the instructions on the blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a fabulous week!!
Happy Stamping!!

Holy Cow! What an intricate and beautifully detailed card! You've certainly got quite the touch with those Tombows. As always I love your gentle sponging. You must use a small "pore" sponge to obtain such smooth results. Incredible!

Small penny hedgehog has become wonderful.
The card is absolutely nice, the colours, the forms, it fit everything wonderfully.
I also wish you a nice new week.
With us here in the Erzgebirge it is grey and rainy, it wants to become here no summer.
Lots of love from Germany
