Cute Card Thursday Challenge

This week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge is "Signs of Spring" and there are some great designs by the DT. As I had a 1st birthday card to make for my friend's little girls, I thought I'd use this gorgeous baby hedgie stamp which is very spring-like looking.
I coloured the hedgie with watercolour pencils and added some Crystal Stickles to the butterfly to make it all glittery. I then cut out the image using circle nesties and mounted it on a baby pink scalloped circle. The background paper was from Banana Frog (double sided) which I mounted on matching pink and brown card. I then cut some cute buttons using a Sizzix die and threaded some pale pink ribbon through 2 of them and mounted them on 3d pads. I finished with a Lili of the Valley sentiment.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Watercolour pencils; Crystal Stickles; Paper (Banana Frog); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Buttons die (Sizzix); Ribbon (recycled); Sentiment (Lili of the Valley)
