Sending Smiles

Hello!
Today I am excited to be sneaking a peek at a product in Hero Arts' amazing Summer catalog. The catalog will be available to view in full on Hero Arts on Monday, but this week, the Hero artists are sharing previews...
My card is created with the new Hedgehog Paper Layering Die. Isn't he just adorable??
I combined the die with stamps from Spring Hello by Lia and Many Everyday Messages, and used lovely textured patterned paper from Fancy Pants' Office Suite pad.

I kept embellishments to a minimum to allow full focus on the cutie hedgehog - just adding a tiny pearl for his nose.

Head to the Hero Arts blog for more sneaks - and tune in all week as they will be showing new products every day! Woo hoo!!
