Happy Hedgehog

Tried out my new Pearlescent paints - I took one of the images stamped for me by Paula last year of Penny Black's little hedgehog.

I saw Card Patterns #75 sketch and thought it would be a great one to highlight the hedgehog
Card Patterns #75



The background papers are by Kaisercraft - from the Gypsy Sisters collection. I used three different sheets, - one for the main background, one to mat the hedgehog and under the third strip which I used a Martha Stewart daisy border punch on.  The lovely big brad is from Bazzilbasics.   I am also entering this in Paper Cutz challenge #  53.

Today I also made my card for Nancy as part of Deborah's Card Chain challenge for August.

A wee sneak preview..... hopefully it will get to her before I go in 10 days and I can show the whole lot.... if not... well you'll just have to wait....

Cheers all.... hope your weekend is going well.... I'm happy as I've just watched the rugby and the All Blacks won again - against Australia ... yeah - GO THE AB's.
