Pretty Pastels

Today I have the Mother's Day card that I made for my Mum to give to her Mum. I've used a sweet Penny Black hedgie from the 'Wonderful' set, which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Summer Breeze' pad by First Edition - I distressed the edges a little, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts, and the Card Candi is by Craftwork Cards.
