Halloween Hedgehog - CCC58, CBC74

Hello all, and happy Monday. Today I have a quick Halloween card for you. I created this card for two different challenges. The first challenge is from the Cupcake Craft Challenge, which was to use the distressing technique. The second is from the Creative Belli Blog, which was simply to create a fall or Halloween card. So here is what I came up with.

I used the hedgehog image from the TAC set Hedgehog Halloween, which is a new set just released at the beginning of September. It can be found in the magaloge Avenue. The set is just adorable. I am hoping to be able to show you a few more of the little hedgehogs in upcoming posts. I only had time to make one card before feeding the family dinner. I stamped the image on Kraft CS, and colored it with water based markers. I added a googly eye to him, and some brown fun flock (also available from TAC) to the back part of him. I layered the hedgehog image onto olive CS after distressing the edges of both CSs. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I colored the "Halloween" word in with orange marker. I layered that onto the olive CS and distressed the edges of that as well. The background printed paper is something I had "laying around" (which is part of the fun of the Creative belli blog...to use up or just use stuff we have laying around.). I believe I purchased it last year from the Target dollar spot. I added the ribbon which I also just had on hand. Here is a close up of the distressing, and you can also see the flock a little better.

Well, that is all for now. I am hoping to be back soon with another challenge post for you too. Thanks for stopping by, and have a great Monday!
