I was thinking, since we could go any theme, of brighter colours, but seem to have ended up with pastels. I found this hedgehog in my box of scraps, and covered over all the grass with white paint and then sprinkled glitter over it.
For the base, I used a dictionary page and stamped it with an IO cover-a-card snowflake stamp in Versamark and embossed it with Iridescent Ice, heating it till it had melted into the paper. Then I misted it with some Brusho acrylic mists.
The torn strip is from the same dictionary page, stamped with Roses in Winter in Versafine Deep Red and distress Victorian Velvet. I edged the whole thing with more white paint and sprinkled glitter over it. Added a sentiment to the hedgie image, edged it in Stickles, popped it up on foam and added some buttons to finish it off.

What a fabulous mixed media creation Sabrina. I hadn't thought to use Brushos in a mister. I love the colour palette, your sweet little hedgie and the vintage buttons. Everything about this makes me smile.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
Sabrina, I looked at both challenges before I started my "pup" card but it just hurt my head to think about it! LOL Sometimes it's a breeze to combine and really they were not difficult challenges to combine but I think I was hyped up about Seth's birthday and couldn't think about one more thing! I checked out your card before I started on mine and was in awe! I love your use of the dictionary paper! Your hedgehog is a so fun and what a moving sentiment! Beautiful card! You always inspire!

This is such a wonderful mixed media card Sabrina. I absolutely love this sweet little hedgie with his flowers, and I am truly impressed with everything you did to make this wonderful card. I have not tried mixed media yet, but I am interested so thank you for describing how you made this fabulous card! I am putting this right into my favs! ~Karen.
