Happy Forever - Sketch Saturday Challenge

I normally don't post the same card on both of my blogs, however, this hedgehog is so stinkin cute and since it's for a sketch challenge and a few others, I'm including it here too.

This stamp set is from the Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month, Happy Forever. It includes four Hedgehogs with a total of 9 stamps. If you're interested in purchasing this stamp set or get it discounted or for FREE, just shoot me an email and I'll hook you up. There's a Blog hop going on here with 70 participants using this set.

The inspiration for this card came from  Sketch Saturday.
I love using Red, White & Blue for any occasion summer cards but usually forget about it when using flowers.

My image was colored with Copic Markers.

The hand stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.

Other challenges with this card:
Papertake Weekly  - Stitching
One Stitch at a Time - Stars and Stripes
Cupcake Inspiration - Red, White & Blue
Quirky Crafts - Ribbon
Stampin Sister's in Christ - Stripes
