Hedgehugs for Anything Goes at Retro Rubber

Welcome to the ever popular Anything Goes challenge for our Retro Rubber Challenge for the next two weeks.  Remember that we ask you use a stamp that has been hanging out in your stash for at least a year, and tell us how long you have had the stamp.  We also request that you enter up to 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.

This is the card I made for my husband for our last anniversary.  Pretty sweet!

I had always wanted to try colored pencils on Kraft cardstock, and I like the results!  I stamped the Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs from 2014 on Kraft cardstock in memento Tuxedo Black and then used my Prisma colored pencils to add detail to cute little hedgehogs.  I was pleasantly surprised that the white added great dimension.   The coordinating die cut the critters out perfectly.  Next I die cut white cardstock with Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles and added a bit of ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays Heartbeat set (2012) and is stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy.  I adhered the hedgehogs with dimensional foam adhesive and then added a few tiny stamped hearts from the Hedgehugs set in Pearlescent Poppy. 

Do stop by the Retro Rubber Challenge blog and see the lovely creations by the design team and enter in your own Anything Goes project.  We would love to see what you create!
