Hedgehog Beauty


Hi everyone!  This is another card I made using my Penny Black "Buzz In The Air" stamp.  I really like this patterned paper so you will be seeing a few more cards yet with it.  The layout for today's card is inspired by the OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #22.

The card base is a half sheet of Rose Red cardstock folded in half.  The rest of the card was created on a slightly smaller piece of Barely Banana cardstock and mounted to the card base using mounting tape.  The patterned paper strips are each 1 1/2 x 3 3/4.  Next I created a Single Tied Bow using 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, pulled another piece of the same ribbon through the back side of the bow then wrapped the ribbon around the card base and taped the ends down on the back side.

The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Buzz In The Air stamp and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges, layered on to a slightly larger piece of Rose Red cardstock then attached to the card base using mounting tape.  To embellish the card I drew a swirl lightly using a pencil then added some medium Kaiser Rhinestones along the swirl pattern.

Hope you have a beautiful day!
