Baby Hedgie

This was a bit a mistake from the beginning, first I coloured this cute image to go with some papers for a DT card but when I got it on my craft table to make the card I didn't like how it was working out so I put it aside. Now when I saw the sketch on Friday Sketchers I thought I would use it for that, didn't like it either but I decided it was the papers I didn't like and suddenly this cards was born.
Lots of embossing and punching. The mat in the middle I did cut in half so you get two mats like on the sketch then I decided I needed a bit of ribbon and now it looks like its not cut at all but I will using that again cos you can only punch certains sized and that bit of ribbon allows it to look like the mat is larger.
Hopefully Mr Blogger is nice to me and schedule this post it is possible I might be worst for wear, also I'm off to a Crop today.
