Happy Hedgehog Birthday

I wanted to catalog my cards with the way I made them, so I can use all those cards I've been keeping as ideas.

I made this card for my Aunt TJ's birthday. The base of the card was from a set of blank notecards from ages ago. I stamped the hedgehog (from Hedgehog Happiness) in Chocolate Chip ink on vanilla cardstock, and trimmed around it. I used the SU watercolor pencils to color him in brown and the balloon in blue. I cut a piece of So Saffron cardstock the same size as the hedghog piece and attached it off the corner. I matted them on a piece of Ballet Blue, and then again on So Saffron. I just learned how to use the Stampin' glitter, and I love it! I've been looking for more ways to use it. I used the 2-way glue pen all over the balloon, and covered it in the Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' glitter. I attached the whole thing to the card, and stamped the flower from Hedghog Happiness across the bottom in Ballet Blue.

If I had been thinking, I would have used a guide for the flower stamp at the bottom of the card.
