Sunny Day Hedgehog and template
I was feeling extra happy today after ending a phone call with one of my absolute favorite loved ones, therefore I felt compelled to design a happy card. I had some colored panels with the hedgehogs from my last card still lying out. I messed up the coloring on one panel, so I decided to save what I could and cut out one of the little guys. I used the Spellbinder's flower die to frame the little scene. I used that as a guideline and hand drew a large flower for the card base.
Hand cut a flower stem for him to hold the flower I punched out with Stampin' Up! Trio Flower punch (Item# 109183). Sponged sky with dauber and Bashful Blue ink. All coloring is done with Stampin' Up! markers. Penny Black little butterfly stamp. Carefully cut him out and pop dotted him.
Stamped and embossed with Iridescent Ice the flourish from Stampin' Up! Priceless set (Item #115052) on the yellow card base. Added green bow and pierced holes around the flower scene to make it stand out. Added a little pearl to the middle of the flower and I felt satisfied.
I am happy to share my Sunny Day Flower template if you want to make your own. Just leave a comment or email me and I'll send it to you. The skunk from Pun Fun would be really cute in the scene too. hmmmmmm....off I go. ;-)
