Dreaming of Spring

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I am so glad to see the sunshine after many days of damp and cloudy weather. So this card has me dreaming of Spring! I am entering this into Penny Black's challenge -- NEW. With this card I have used my new vagabond machine to cut the dies, used my new gelli plate to make the background and the background is a new technique! I just love this cute hedgehog from the Penny Black stamp set Wonderful Day.

I pop dotted the center die to give the card some more dimension. 

The black embossing powder and glitter are compliments of Sparkle N Sprinkle. I also used Diamond Glaze over the glittered flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and blessed day!
