Hedgie and Cactus Valentine

Hello, everyone! Happy Valentine's Day! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Paperesse (S. Thomas) - thank you for joining me!

Today I'm sharing a quick Valentine's Day card!  I say quick because I used a pre-coloured image! This adorable hedgie is from The Paper Shelter called How You Doin'. He's getting cozy with the cactus - so cute and fun!  I printed the image on photo paper and mounted it on a dark brown square.


I stamped a sentiment (this is an older wood-mounted stamp by Kolette Hall) with Ancient Page - Chocolate and coloured it with Prismacolor pencils. The kraft panel is embossed with Cuttlebug Cross My Heart and mounted on dark brown cardstock. To finish it off, I added three gold heart sequins.

  18. I love the little hedgehog cuddling up to the cactus Kitty, what a cute image! Pre-coloured digis are fabulous for quick card making and also helpful when the mojo is a bit drained. You did an awesome job matching the coloured image with the neutral background... well done!
    Cheers,
    Beccy
