Crinkles The Hedgehog!

Good morning again! And yes, I'm back again as it's Friday and there is a new challenge on Totally Papercrafts!  The challenge this week is 'Frame It' - so we want to see a 'frame' around your image. There are some fantastic samples from the Design Team so do pop over to the Totally Papercrafts Challenge Blog and take a look - and then join us!
We've got two sponsors this week - which means 2 prizes!


My contribution this week uses a gorgeous image from Dilly Beans - Crinkles the Hedgehog!

Isn't he just the cutest! I've coloured him with promarkers & pencils - although not too sure whether I've managed to create the 'prickles' properly! I found a wood mounted rubber stamp in my hoard that I've had for many years from Hero Arts and the flowers matched those on the digi stamp pretty well, so I decided to use that as an 'accent'. 

The flowery backing paper is from K&Co and the blue paper was a freebie! I cut the square frame to match the stamp, edged with a black promarker. 
The sentiment is from the same Hero Arts set, with buttons from my stash just to finish it off. 
Hope you like it!
Back soon, Kim x
