Happy Hedgehog!

As I have so little craft stash (yeah right!) I treated myself to another Docrafts special offer pack containing some lovely Country Companion goodies.  The papers and decoupage sheets are soooo pretty in lovely, muted coloured, and some of the decoupage is mahoosive, this card is actually 8x8.
I teamed the papers with soft lilac and a pop of lime green to pull out the colours in the image.  The tag is a luggage label which has been embossed with a Sheena Douglass embossing folder and inked with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.  The pretty border punch is Martha Stewart and was borrowed from a friend, I have major punch envy!
The flower was made with a Woodware punch with Flower Soft for the centre and I couldn't resist adding a cute wee wooden ladybird.
For a change (not!) I finished my card with ribbon, a bow and a few dabs of Stardust Stickles.

There was a small decoupage of the same image in the pack so I made a matching gift tag with a luggage label and some paper off-cuts.
