Graduation Hedgie! { Penny Black }


On Saturday, I mentioned that it was going to be "Happy Hedgie Week" on my blog because Nancy (directmailscrapper) at the Stamp Shack sent me an envelope FULL of images of these cute little hedgehogs by Penny Black. They are such FUN to color with prismacolor pencils, but I'm still practicing on getting the colors right on this little critter! :)

It just so happens that I needed a congratulations card for a friend who recently graduated from college, so this image was perfect! I used my Cuttlebug congrats embossing folder on a royal blue cardstock with white core, then sanded it lightly so the words were more visible.

The tag sentiment "You did it!" is from my first ever Stampin' Up! stamp set ~ Mini Mates. I still use it often. I punched it out with the 1" scalloped punch by Martha Stewart and then layered with SU punches 1-1/4 & 1-3/8". I added an eyelet and 1/8" grosgrain ribbon and attached with dimensionals. The little tab on the left side is made using the word window punch and an eyelet.

I've got a couple more of these images here... so STAY TUNED!
Have a GREAT week! Smiles, Pam : )
