Second card for CCAYR March challenge

This is my design card for CCAYR March challenge: cute critters. Please click on the link to see the lovely cute designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used an Embossalicious 8 x 8 embossed folder to emboss a piece of Core-dinations Kraft-core card which I then sanded and rubbed randomly with Gilding Blush old gold, I stamped the lovely Penny Black caroling hedgehogs and lightly coloured with chameleon pens. I then die cut the image and a piece of pink/kraft Core-dinations kraft-core using a couple of X cut rectangle parenthesis dies, sanding this and then lightly gilding in parts.

This is also for:
