Thinking of You Card ~ Hello {3rd Post}

Oh my goodness the end of June is here already. Yikes.
Each month I tell myself I am going to play along early 
with the progressive challenges I join in each month...
I download the wonderful freebie I am sent and even copy it.
Then life time flies and I realize I haven't played yet.
Here is the third of the three I have to share today.

First I colored up this sweet little hedgehog scene.
Next I cut it out using a stitched rectangle die.
To finish up my card I framed the scene with blue paper
then popped the panel up with foam tape for dimension.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*E13, E33, B21, B23, B63, G14 and Y11 markers from Copic.

May your day always be filled with love.
