A Hedgehog Birthday!


I found a bunch of Penny Black “Hedgehog” rubber stamps in my box of forgotten stamps.  So I inked them all up and showed them some love again!  This one is called “Hedgehog Joy”.  I figure this must be a pretty old one.  I used Copics to color the stamp.  The pretty papers are from the Echo Park “happy days” paper pad.  The tag is a die from Simon Says Stamp as is the sentiment.  I used the MS lace border punch to create the look of lace and then found a small piece of real lace and ribbon in my box of leftovers to add some more texture or layers.  The little butterfly is also an MS punch.   The twine is by Lawn Fawn and I used some glue to stiffen the curls in the ends of the bow.  Then to finish it off I added some light blue pearls.
