Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 103

Well after reading this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 103 'In The Garden' I thought I would not be able to take part until I found two Hedgehog stamps both from the 'Bubbly' Birthday set.

I have also made this card to fit in with Pear Tree Designs: Challenge 2 - Floral Delights

Card Ingredients:

Penny Black Hedgehogs 'Bubbly' Birthday Set
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink - Broken China
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink - Peeled Paint
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink - Old Paper
My Mind's Eye Spring Papers - Polka dot backing paper
My Mind's Eye Spring Papers- Pink paper behind image
Kate Knight Paper - Cut out Flowers and dragonfly
Gingham Ribbon

The distressed Ink was dabbed on via a sponge for the sky and grass back ground. I coloured in the hedgehogs using some watercolour pencils I picked up yesterday from the craft shop along with the Kate Knight Paper. The flowers and dragon fly were cut from the paper and fortunatly they all had a flat edge so I used them along the bottom of the card. The two flowers that were whole I decided to scrunch up and stick together I added a gem to the middle of the flower and used the Old Paper distressed ink to weather the edges and the crumples on the flower to add some depth. The final thing I did was to add a small green gingham bow and stamp the sentiment.

Right back to the workbench and creating more cards (I guarantee most will end up being Christmas ones)
