Hedgehog Harry

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. It's time for a new challenge over at The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog and our theme this week is 'More than one fold'. It's team A providing the inspiration this time and I have made a gate fold card:

I used The Crafty Pad - Hedgehog Harry in Circle of Flowers image, I printed the complete image several times because I wanted one for the front and another for the inside, I also wanted to decoupage the flowers.  I then cropped the flowers and reduced them so that I could use them to decorate the corners, these have also been decoupaged.  I decided to use lovely bright colours for the flowers and used my ProMarkers.

On the inside of my card, I have cut away Hedgehog Harry and stamped a sentiment, I then decoupaged the flowers to match the front:

Our fab sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen with £10 to spend in her online store


Papers: Bearly Mine Designs - Gingham
