A Hedgehog for Crafty Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing a simple card I made as a reminder for the current Crafty Wednesday challenge here on my blog. The theme this month is "All creatures great and small" and you have a little over a week left to play along, and don't forget you can enter up to 3 times. I've attached the linky to the end of this post, so all you have to do to enter is scroll down.

The image is from the Penny Black set Loads of Love, it's a 'new to me' set, and I also have it available brand new in my Etsy shop if you're interested, along with the sentiment I used here (Sweet Wishes) and the stencil. I heat embossed the image on Bristol Vellum paper then colored with my Zig Clean Color markers and my Zig Detailer waterbrush. After coloring I stencilled the design using light gray ink and then stamped the "happy birthday" from the set Snippets several times. The truck in the image is filled with lots of little hearts, but I decided I wanted flowers so I placed little prima flowers all over. The flourish die I used behind the flowers is from Whimsy Stamps (retired). I finished off the card with some jute twine and sticky pearls. 

Zig colors used: deep green, yellow, pale pink, flesh color, light pink, green-gray, gray. These colors are all available in the set of 36 I linked below, they can also be purchased as single colors from  Blick Art Materials or
