I’ve Fall-en for him!

There is a SKETCH to follow with the twist to add GEMS to your project at Pear Tree Designs.Here’s the sketch :

We have a fantastic sponsor too – Lilac Lemon Designs.They produce beautiful quality rubber stamps.So for a chance to win,details on how to play and take inspiration from the fabulous DT and GDTcards please click on the link.

It’s no secret in my house that I love,love,LOVE Hedgehogs!I really,really,REALLY want one as a pet.So it made sense to use this gorgeous little fella.If you’d like to give this cute and cuddly little chap,who goes by the name of Sticky Diddle,a home head on over to Digi Doodle Shop. If Hedgehogs aren’t your thing then take a look at their other images – there so many wonderful designs to choose from and I hope you can see from my card how crisply and perfectly they print out.I’ve coloured him with Promarkers and you can see where the camera has picked out the Glossy Accents on his nose and eyes.To keep his roundness I shaped I shaped him and adhered him using silicone glue.These brilliant papers are freebies from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine (you have to register before you can download them).The Hedgehog one already has a cream background but I printed the plaid one onto ivory card.I printed onto card because it’s more substanstial for distressing than regular copy paper.I did use my new Papermania Victorian Fleur embossing folder on the piece the Hedgehog is sitting on and the greeting panel.Although IRL I was very impressed ( no pun intended!) with the result it doesn’t show up too well here :(.I have also mirrored the sketch as I saw the potential to create a hinged card from it. I picked an Autumnal theme as it suits this image so well plus it’s a time of year I adore for all the colours!!
