Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT

This week at Simon Says Stamps Challenge we have a colour challenge for you of: pink or blue with green and brown.

The DT are showcasing Penny Black stamps this week so I decided that these cute hedgehogs would look great with these colours for a Father's Day card. The papers are K&Co and I've distressed them with brushed cordoruy distress ink. I have used the gorgeous sketch by Chelsea at Crafting Life's Pieces Challenge, thanks hun it is a stunning sketch!

I have coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with bundled sage distress ink. They're so cute aren't they?

I have used MS double loops punch along the edge and stamped a swirl from the Whiff of Joy Spring Swirls kit in two corners.

The ribbon is from my stash and the buttons are Basic Grey. I used a charm from my stash and the sentiment I have written myself with my calligraphy pen.

Hope you like it and can join us this week at Simon Says Stamp Challenge. Pop over to the blog and have a look at the gorgeous creations the rest of the DT have for you! Thanks for looking! x
