So when I started this card I was going to focus on the hedgehog and then while I was sifting through the Artfully Sent cartridge images, I found this one... the card is for my niece who loves the Paris theme lately (and she loves hedgehogs).. so I got off track for awhile and was focusing on the Paris theme and when I got done I realized I'd completely forgotten about the hedgehog. So I decided this cute little hedgehog would be the perfect addition to the card if I just added a cute little glittery pink bow....lol! You may or may not agree... but I love it! The paper is brushed; the flowers were cut from Art Philosophy in varying sizes and embossed with gold. It was definitely a fun card to make and it was perfect because here is her gift:
I was shopping at the Brass Armadillo here in the Phoenix area... one of my favorite places to browse when I have time ... hundreds of vendors with vintage and not so vintage used as well as created finds and collectibles. I stumbled upon the lamp base which had no shade. She wants a chandelier in her room.. 9!... but in this part of the country we need our ceiling fans, so I thought maybe a good substitute would be an Eiffel Tower lamp with a blinged up lamp shade. I got this plain white lamp shade and added a few baubles. The frame I did not make, I stumbled upon this at another vintage shopping faire and loved it and bought it. I think they go together nicely!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to come by tomorrow to check out my version of the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for next week!
