Life is a tightrope walk!

Thanks for dropping by today, I love visitors!!!

Today I'm sharing with you a card I put together very quickly as my entry for this week's Let's Get Stamping challenge over on Craftbubble.  The sketch is nice and simple but with a couple of twists as it needs to include wavy lines and the image should be an animal.

Well, I think I hit this right on the nail with my sweet tightrope walking Hedgie - how cute is he?  I don't actually know if it's a he, but I think so anyway !!  He's a Penny Black image which a crafting pal sent to me as a gift.  I've been keeping him 'for best' but decided he was perfect for this challenge.

As usual, I used ProMarkers to colour in the image, then cut it out with a round nestabilities die.  I mounted this on to a pale green layer cut with a very slightly larger petite scallop circle nestie.  I am not sure who the sentiment is by, it was sitting in my box of bits and I thought the hand-written effect was perfect, it was cut out with a nestie die and two yellow brads added, one at each end.

I picked up a few lengths of sparkly ric-rack ribbon from the bargain bucket at my local Art Store last saturday, little did I know they would come in handy so quickly!!  The flowers and flower brad were in my stash and the background paper is yet another from the Papermania Spring 8x8 pads I am loving so much at the moment.

Thanks again for visiting today, I hope to share more projects with you over the coming days, thanks in advance if you feel like leaving me some feedback!
