Little Hedgehogs Last Stamp of the Month From Close To My Heart-AHSC 573

 This is Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #573.

I used a Sage cardstock and the Stitched Swirl card front background for the base of the card. The horizontal stripes were a zip strip and 2 background and texture papers from the Honey Bunny collection. The sentiment, flower and adorable hedgehog came from the April Stamp of the Month "Little Hedgehogs". The coloring was done with various Tri Blend Markers.

Three Challenges One Card!

 I'm combining 3 challenges for a birthday card. They are Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, Color Dare Color Challenge and a new one for me AAA Birthday Card Challenges.

Here are the sketches from each of the blogs:

Here is my spin on the combined challenges:

I originally had the strips on white but it just left me flat, so I added a black background to give the colors some punch. The open hearts were some I cut awhile ago and were sitting in a dish on my work table. I love having die cuts ready to go! I decided to emboss the Happy Birthday in Gold Tinsel embossing powder. It's always fun to emboss. I have all my embossing tools, versamark and powders in a clear shoebox ready to grab and go. That makes it so easy! The papers came from the Jan-Feb Mix-ins along with black and Candy Apple cardstock. I did pull an old embossing folder to add hearts to the Candy Apple cardstock. I keep all my embossing folders in a 6 x 8 album so it is easy to flip through and find what I'm looking for. The strips were cut in 3/4" x 5" and spaced about 1/4" apart. Any colors or coordinating patterns could be used for this sketch along with whatever sentiment you need for the occasion.
