Challenge #113 at Crafty Gals Corner ~ Polka Dots and/or Stripes

Hello crafting friends. Hope you're all doing well!
Time for another challenge at Crafty Gals Corner!

Challenge #113 ~  Polka Dots and/or Stripes!

Our sponsors for this challenge are:

My Besties

Prize ~ The following 3 images

Lemon Shortbread
Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

When I saw this image from Lemon Shortbread, I fell in love with it. I always have problems picking an image from our wonderful sponsors. They have so many amazing images, how are you supposed to pick just one? :-) But every so often, an image just calls out to me and in this case this little hedgehog did just that. Now the pressure was on to make a card worthy of him, so I looked through my Silhouette library and found this card fold. I thought it perfect for this little guy.

This image from Lemon Shortbread is called Hedgehog Leaves.
I used copic markers for colouring the image and memento inks for shading the leaves.

The Silhouette design number for this card fold is 179389.
I used Ginak card stocks and DP from a Core'dinations paper stack called Pastels.
The broom is a die cut from Cottage Cutz and the little leaves are from the Leafy Rectangles from Spellbinders.

Here is a close up of the very cute hedgehog.

And a close up of the inside of the card.

A bird's eye view of the card when opened.

And this is how it folds completely flat for mailing. I added a couple of pumpkins cut with a Cottage Cutz die and 3 little candy corn that I had in my stash.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today. Now it's your turn to make a project using polka dots and/or stripes.  You have till noon, CST, on Tuesday, 14 March 2017, to join in the fun at Crafty Gals Corner.

Till next time,
Happy Crafting!
