PB Challenge 287 - Happy Valentine's Day

This week on the Penny Black Challenge Blog - the challenge is to CASE Debby's card (see 2nd picture).   Good thing this cute PB stamp fell into my basket the other day.  Funny how things keep falling in my shopping basket, huh??.  This is a long card  4" x 8", which I rarely make, but I had a few envelopes that would work and the image is pretty big - so it worked perfectly.

I colored up this cute hedgehog with my prisma pencils.  I masked him and then created the clouds.  Then popped up the balloons on dimensionals.   I used two different PTI stamps to make the sentiment.  Finally, I added some enamel accents to the balloons - although the picture doesn't do it justice.

Here's the inspiration picture.  Come play along!!

Thanks for your visit!

I'm awfully fond of hedgehogs......being the owner of a sweet real one...but I must say, this is the CUTEST hedgehog card I've ever seen. Love the scene you created with the cloud background and love the coloring and dimension on the balloons. Great sentiment, too. This totally starts my morning off with a smile! :)

What a sweet, sweet card, love your image and then the way you did the balloons, too cute. The papers and the colors are just perfect, giving a Spring feel. You do so well with the masking, I just don't always have the patience to cut things out :)

How fun! I love the popped up ballons. I swear that things jump into my cart all the time too. It must be a sales technique in every single craft store or kitchen store I have ever been in!
