Happy Birthday Allsorts Challenge

Good morning! This week is a special week at Allsorts challenge as we are celebrating 9 years of challenges! We have a lot of wonderful prizes lined up, 9 of them including a store voucher from Craft Obsessions, so hopefully you can join us this week.

Our theme is "Happy Birthday" of course :)

I think this little hedgehog is ready for the party with his party hat and party horn. The image is a stickeroo from Penny Black, perfect for a quick card. Of course in my case I decided to fussy cut the image which I stuck to white card stock first. 

The top striped border was done using a stencil by Echo Park - Fashionista Collection: Glamour Stripes and Black Soot Distress ink. The patterned paper is from my box of scraps and the sentiment is from Tim Holtz' Quotations sticker set. White card stock is Neenah Linen textured 80lb. My old stampin up paper piercing tool kit was used to paper pierce. I finished off the card by tying some May Arts Burlap Twine  around the card. 

I followed the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge :
