Hedgehogs and Daisies

Hello everyone!  I hope everyone has had a good weekend.  I have a couple of hedgehogs to share with you tonight.  Not literally, of course, but a cute little hedgehog from the Tiddly Inks set, Mini and Many Friends.   There are several cute little images in the set.

Both of these cards are 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 with the fold at the top.   I know it seems like an odd size, but I have a large supply of 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 envelopes, for some reason.  The images in this stamp set are small (hence the "mini" in the name), so it worked out great.  I stamped them on some scrap Copic Xpress paper and colored them both with my Copics.   It came to my attention rather quickly that I had no idea how to color a  So, I gave it my best shot.  

For the card above I used the patterned paper from the June SSS monthly card kit along with some White Daisy and Canary cardstock from CTMH.   I punched the flowers and butterflies and used the Curvy Leaves die set from Elizabeth Craft. for the leaves.   I used the SSS postage stamp die set for inside trim of the frame.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but the frame is raised using my new-found love, fun foam.   

The card below was assembled the same way.  I used Smoothie, Desert Sand, and Canary inks from CTMH to randomly stamp the background with the daisy image from the set.  Then I layered up my frame with cardstocks of the same colors.  The flower below is layered with punches and die cuts from the Rose Creations die set from Spellbinders.  
All in all I think they turned out to be pretty cute little cards.  I will be posting at least one of these little guys on a few challenges, which I will list below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
