Fall Hedgy Thank You

Hi Everyone,
Boy, it is really getting cold here. Had to wear a jacket today and turn on the furnace last night. These temps really make it feel like Fall. So, saying that, I have a Hedgy Fall themed Thank You card. I used one of the Hedgehog stamps from Penny Black.

The Hedgies are so cute. This one has a Lady bug delivering a thank you note. I watercolored the image with ink and a wet brush. I used a Spellbinders die. And, I also added a background dry embossed with a Cuttlebug Folder. And thank you is repeatedly stamp on the Soft Suede with a Stampin' Up stamp. CS: Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, Soft Suede from Stampin' Up. Here are some detail photos so you can see all the Challenge elements.

And for a extra treat, I am giving you the view that the card reciepient sees...the inside.

I will of course write a little note. This really cute sentiment stamp is from Verses Rubber Stamps.
