Hedgehog Birthday Card - SSS203

Although I have been working on a few projects lately, unfortunately, they are things I haven't been able to post for various reasons!  Some are super-top secret and can't be revealed just yet. I promise as soon as I can, you will see them sooner or later.

One of the biggest things I have been working on for the past few weeks has been samples for my niece's wedding! I am so excited that she loves my ideas and she wants me to make her invitations and her guest book. You'll have to wait a while to see those though...

Today, I would like to share a card that I made for a very dear friend of mine. This card was created using the Sweet Stop Sketch #203 for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Sketch Challenge Blog. Please click on any of the images for a closer look!

The card was made for a friend's birthday, and I wanted to make her a super-special card because she is a super-special person. Nancy is the reason for my hand-stitching addiction, and I can't give her a card that isn't stitched! In fact, lately, I've been having a tough time making any card that isn't stitched. (Thanks a lot, Nancy!!! LOL!)

This card was created using some retired CTMH paper, called Mayberry. This is one of my all-time favorite paper packs, and I am so glad that I still have a bunch. The hedgehog is from a Penny Black Acrylic Stamp set called Wonderful Day. This image was colored using my Copic Markers. The embellishments are all CTMH, and the card is hand-stitched using matching embroidery floss. It's hard to tell on the photo, but there is lots of dimension, and the bee's wings are glittery.

Here is a close-up of the stitching. is a peek at the inside of the card.

Hope you enjoyed my card! Stay tuned for a few more posts in the coming days...I had a productive weekend :o)
