Darling Hedgehog!

Happy Wednesday everyone! It's time for another challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and we have a great sketch for you this week.

This is another one of those wonderful Arlana sketches that goes together rather quickly, shows off your designer papers really well and is versatile witht the embellishments and sentiment.  I loved using this sketch!

 And the other thing I love about this week is our monthly sponsor - Digi Stamp Boutique!  Sally Ann, the owner of Digi Stamp Boutique, has been a sponsor from the very first sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and is so generously providing 6 digi stamps to the Grand Prize winner of the challenge this week.  We all love creating with DSB images and this week is no exception!

I chose this darling hedgehog from Digi Stamp Boutique to create my card.  I colored him with Copics and used tiny little brush strokes to try to create that prickly looking fur that hedgehogs have!  The fun, bright papers are from Echo Park's "Summer Days" collection and I found the perfect daisy buttons and ric rack at my local craft store to coordinate with it.

The design team creations this week will blow your socks off so take a stroll over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and take a look. I hope you'll join us in the challenge this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sharon, I'm beaching this week! Figured since I wasn't much of a water surfer that I'd go blog surfing instead. Your card is the sweetest! Love your little hedgie and your coloring!! Fabulous papers and flower buttons. Simply marvelous.
