Sketch Saturday Week #92

For this week's Sketch Saturday challenge I chose to use this cute Motivet stamp called Hedgehog with balloons for a birthday card.  Sorry for the slightly blurry picture but I was in a hurry to finish.  I usually have a very hard time with bright colors but with the balloons being so vibrant I wanted to try and carry on with that.   I have to admit the sketch was challenging for me so I was glad to be with Simone to brainstorm on that one.  Thanks buddie!  You can see her card for this challenge over HERE.  Personally, I think she ROCKED it! 

Stamps: Hedgehog with Balloons
Paper: Doodlebug
Embellishments:  Prima flowers, misc pewter brads & gems and borrowed epoxy making buttons from Simone.  Actually everything was hers!  ha ha!  Thanks again buddie!
Punches:  Martha Stewart border punch and square nesties
Ink: Colored With Copics and Momento Ink
Hedgehog back:   E43, E44, E45
Hedge hog front:  E40, E41, E42
Green balloon:     YG03, YG11, YG23
Orange balloon:    YR00, YR02, YR04
Blue balloon:        B0000, B000, B00, B02
Red balloon:         R27, R05, R02, R00
