Card Design: Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge...October

Hello there! It is time to get my progressive card for the Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge uploaded. Check out the adorable hedgehog  image that we got to work with this month...

Cold Hedgehog Digital Stamp

I've never seen a real live hedgehog before but I bet they are as cute as this one. Though they probably don't wear scarves. ;)

Everyone who played along in last month's challenge received Cold Hedgehog for free. If you decide to hop on and play along in the Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge, then you can purchase this digital by clicking HERE (or on the watermark above to head to its location in the store). This way you'll receive next month's digital stamp for free. Although, given how little time left there is in the challenge, you'd need to work REALLY FAST! ;)

Here are my card and details...

General Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop).  I will print it out and assemble it a later date.

  • Cold Hedgehog: You can find this image in the store. Details above. 
  • This image was coloured digitally. Credits include:
    • Hedgehog and scarf were paper pieced using textures from My Free Textures
