Penny Black Hedgehogs

My absolute favorite images are Penny Black Hedgehogs. I was hooked when I saw the Shy Hedgehog for the first time. It was my first PB Hedgehog purchase. Here are a couple cards that I've made featuring hedgies.

I visited Cat's Craft Cupboard in Escondido, CA while visiting my sister in San Diego. Cat asked if I had ever tried flocking my hedgehog images and I never had. This is one of my favorite ways to embellish my hedgehogs now. I love the texture it adds. Thanks for the suggestion Cat!

The second card I sent to my friend Judi from my Card Cafe Yahoo Group. This card I made up as I went along. I love the color combination and the little pearls setting off the scalloped edge where the card opens.
