Hedgehog and Flowers

We carry a wonderful Hedgehog Hostess C set (earn FREE with a $500 net order). It has 11 stamps and is great for any occasion!!  I was playing with a sketch challenge over on Paper Wings (click link in sidebar) and this set just popped out at me.

Isn't he just TOO cute?? And the wagon of flowers, the wheels.....  I really like this card.  I used Emma SWIC, black, and white card stocks.  Oh, the phrase comes from the Brighten Your Day stamp set (sorry, I couldn't get the link to work).

I colored with the PrismaColor Pencils3/8"  and 1/4" blending stumps, and OMS. Can you see the faint shading I was able to do? And I used the Stardust Clear Gel pen in the center of the flowers for some bling.  How do you like the wheels??  They're just 1/4" black buttons and white scrappers floss. Oh, I used Pop Dots under the flowers for more dimension. 

I do appreciate those of you who leave comments.  Those comments are very important to me.  Thanks so much!

Sweet card! I like the buttons for the wheels on the wagon and the way you popped up the flowers for more dimension! So cute!

Darling! I like the bling in the center of the flowers! The shading did come through - looks great! and the buttons for the wheels are perfect.

I had to search to find where to comment on this....Is there a way to move your comment button to the bottom of your post?

Hugs! Laurie U

Rollin' rollin' rollin' keep those nifty wheels making miles of smiles on TAC cards. Great use of button and scrapers' floss. Thanks for the size specifics. Helpful indeed.
Hedgie always grabs attention. Here Hedgie gives attention to well colored and placed flowers.
Keep Looking UP!

Amazing what that glitter pen will do to add pop and lift an image "off the page" for memorable card gifting.
Great choice in Hedgie's card of flowers.
Keep Looking UP!
