DCM Sketch
I have based this card on the sketch at DCM. I have flipped it, as for some reason I thought my card looked odd the other way! I have stamped and coloured the Penny Black hedgehog stamp using Prismacolors and Sansador and I layered it onto circles cut with Nestabilities dies. To finish the card off I added some ribbon and a couple of flowers and a touch of glitter to the stamped image.

Andrea, I always think that you've reached the maximum cuteness with your cards . . . I think there is no way you can make them any cuter! I'm always wrong! This is just adorable! Your images are fantastic, and your coloring is perfect! The lilac is great, the ribbon is wonderful, and the flowers are the perfect finishing touch. Penny Black should hire you to make card samples! Seriously!
