Hedgehog Cuteness with a Button and Bow

Hello and welcome!

I decided to make a sort of clean and simple- ish card today, using a cute hedgehog stamp from Penny Black's set "Sweet You"

I stamped the image using Versafine Onyx ink and then colored with my Zig Clean Color markers and fussy cut using Cutterbee scissors.

A die cut mask was used to ink up some hills with Shabby Shutters Distress ink. A Lavinia stamp (Lavender) was used behind the image for a tall grass impression before adhering the image.

On the top portion of the card I used Tim Holtz's Rays stencil with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then stamped the sentiment from the Penny Black set Happy Wishes using Versafine Onyx ink.

I was looking for some accent designer paper in my box of straps and found the simple striped paper and then added a small piece of "script" designer paper.
Following Kath's optional theme of "Buttons or Bows" I added a button with some May Arts jute twine tied into a bow.
