Hedgehog Happiness

Hi all! This week I knew I'd be short on time to create, so I combined Just Add Ink challenge of ripping and the sketch challenge at Inkspirations. Heres what I came up with:

How cute are those hedgehogs? I'm not sure if you can see in the picture, but I have machine stitched around the patterned paper and then just ripped/tore the paper to the stitch line. I'm not one to really tear or distress on my cards, but I think this still works. I'm also loving these colours at the moment. I picked up a "Vintage Elegance" by Grace Taylor from Big W, with the intention of doing more 'vintage' cards, as this is a style I don't do well. I've teamed it up with some soft suede and added buttons and seam binding from my stash. I really love how easy this card came together! It sometimes defiantly helps having a sketch as a starting point.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
