It's "Happy Hedgie Week" ! :) Nancy (directmailscrapper) at the Stamp Shack sent me an envelope FULL of images of these cute little critters! All I had to do was leave a not so subtle hint on a post of hers. ; ) She's a sweetie and I know that I must owe her a book of stamps by now for all the images she's sent to me. Thanks so much Nancy!!!
This rubber stamp image is called "Hedgehog Bouquet". I couldn't find a Penny Black website, but I did find a LOT of the stamps for sale at Addicted to Rubber Stamps. There are SO many that I would love to have! The sentiment stamp is from a Hero Arts Clear Design set called "Friendship Messages".
For this card, I used my brand new Stampin' Up! "Wild Wasabi" green cardstock. I love this shade of green and think it's prettier in real life than in this photo. Also used are summer sun, pumpkin pie and the patterned paper is "harvest stripe" by Karen Foster. The ribbon is from JoAnn's - the little 99 cent mini spools. The green is called "kiwi" and the orange is "creamsicle". That makes me hungry for a Jamba Juice! :)
Some cards come together easier than others and for some reason, this one took me awhile. Maybe I was trying too hard. Coloring the image was relaxing and fun, but this layout just wasn't happening for me. Anyway, I hope you like it!!
