Happy Hedgie for you - DTC#49

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you're having a good week so far and warmer weather too! The snow has been finally melting here, still a few patches here and there, but it is definitely going away.

Today the theme over at the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog, chosen by Michelle is

"Paper Piercing"

I love the look of paper piercing! So this was fun as I haven't done it for some time now.


My image is a brand new one from Digital Stamp Oasis. I just released 3 brand new images, one is this "Happy Hedgie", there's also "costume kids - bunny" and "costume kids - bee". I think they are so cute and perfect for spring themed cards.

Image was colored with copic markers. I sponged with bashful blue ink around the edges to soften it a little. I embellished with some flowers, leaves, buttons, ribbon, and pearls and did some paper piercing. The designer papers are from my stash, I have no clue who the maker is. Other papers are Stampin Up's bashful blue, basic gray and GP white.

In addition to the Digital Tuesday Challenge my card also fits the following challenges

Friday Sketchers - sketch
saturday spotlight - friendship
dare U 2 digistamp - pearls
PaperPlay challenges - just because
cupcake craft challenge - flower power
stamp with fun - spring

I am getting really good at combining challenges thanks to the Daily Dare blog!!
