This is for Cathy's WTUI challenge. I don't want to give away the details till it's live, so I'll explain why it fits when I link the card on the challenge thread which is HERE.
I stamped Harrison Hedgehog on a scrap of white and coloured him with pencils, stamping the little heart a second time and adding it.
Background is the SU ef inked before embossing. I added a sentiment stamped on vellum, so as not to take away too much from the background, and added it with a couple of cross-stitches in twine.
The leaves were punched from watercolour, misted with water, coloured with re-inkers and a little Brusho in orange sprinkled over them. Two are popped up on foam.
I made a leafy base and it just didn't work, so in the end I just did a doodled black border. Mixed feelings about this, but life is pretty crazy just now and I'm happy just to have time to produce something I'm happy to send even if it's not a personal favourite.

Sabrina this is fabulous. I love your Ef stamping and gorgeous forest scene. Harrison looks very content in his fine pencil coloured fur. I nearly feel off my chair when I read you had mixed feelings about this.....I think you really do need to come here for a holiday....right now. Xxx
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Ok it's not your favorite but there is nothing wrong on this card really!! I love your background your sentiment stamped on vellum is a great idea and to fix it as you've done is just very crafty, your border is great as it is, and your colored leaves are beautiful to finish Hedgehog is happy to cross your forest, what to say else? I love your card
