TGIF my crafty friends!
I've decided to throw my hat into the ring for the My Favorite Things 2016 Card Design Superstar contest and I am super nervous! There are already so many great cards entered and the competition is definitely stiff. But the prize is pretty darn amazing and there is zero chance at winning if I chicken out and not try at all. So for this first card I've mixed the Sweet Succulents set with the new Happy Hedgehogs set. I couldn't resist pairing up the prickly cacti with this prickly little cutie. Years ago I had three African Pygmy hedgehogs as pets and they were just the sweetest and funniest little critters. Their coloring is very different from the traditional hedgehogs that most of us think of, what with their white bodies and salt and pepper quills, so that is the look that I was trying to mimic with my Copics. The background is simple watercolor 'smooshing' and I framed them all in with the cool new Single Stitch Line die-namics. Sure it's another CAS card but it makes me smile none the less. :)
Alrighty then, wish me luck!
