Hedgehog Heaven "Guten tag"

Ok on "Flutterby Wednesday" the challenge was to keep it simple. I hope I did! I stamped the hedgehog with the little butterfly in basic black and embossed him. I coloured him in with tombow markers. a while ago I bought some shimmering mists and I tried it out on some green scrap paper. I didn't like the way the paper looked but later I bought a small flower punch(from that terrific sale at "my" stamp store (Duffy's Classic's) and I tried it out and it seemed to work. I just glued them around the image and added flower crystals and then I tried to cut out the bright blue paper in a nice symetrical way....I should know better. I can never make a straight line and everything always seems a bit crooked...oh well. Now my lovely little german hedgehog..actually Austrian, well, I had to put her beside the card. When I went with my mom to Austria in 1972(I was 8), I bought 2 of them, one for me and the other I gave to my best friend(she got the boy hedgehog). I have cherished mine ever since. In Europe they are crazy for hedgehogs and a lady (Marlene-check out her blog) talked about her pet hedgehog the previous week on her blog, so I had to post this dirndle (Folk dress) girl in:) Auf Wiedersehn!
