Prairie Hills Hedgies

I had a play with some new goodies yesterday...these gorgeous papers are from the 'Prairie Hills' pad by Pink Paislee...which I won in Carissa's candy a little while ago. The hedgies are from the 'Hugs' set by Penny Black, the flowers were cut using my Tim Holtz 'Tattered Florals' and Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet dies, with a litttle pearl for their centres. I used Nesties to make the frame, and the smallest of my circles to make the faux 'Card Candy', shaping them with an embossing tool, and popping them on with foam pads. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.

Challenges for this card:
  • Allsorts - CASE It (I 'borrowed' lots of elements - layout, colours, PB hedgies, scalloped edge card)
  • Inky Impressions - Dies or punches (I used dies to cut the flowers & faux Card Candy)
  • Papertake Weekly - Make Your Own (Flowers & Card Candy)
  • Penny Black & More @ Allsorts - Summer Blooms
  • Shopping Our Stash - Something New (I won the papers a few weeks ago...and this is the first time I've been able to bing myself to cut into them!)
  • Sir Stampalot - Your Crafty Passion (PB stamps, pretty papers, flowers)
