You should have come to my blog from Jill Foster's blog
 
I have used Penny Black stamps since forever! I have stamped for years and this is one of those companies that has continued to create adorable stamps.  I picked this little guy in a set of stamps for my card. 

 A hedgehog just NEEDS Flower Soft, it is a perfect fit.  I used two colors of the Ultra Fine, Toffe and Earth.  I most often seem to use the Ultra Fine Flower Soft for my projects.  I also used some of Penny Blacks' Mix and Match papers. I picked a set with my most favorite shades of green but the best part is this paper is white on the reverse side making them perfect for cardmaking and with that white core, I cut my labels with a Spellbinders die and embossed the edges and then sanded the embossed edge to expose that white core.
For the flower, I colored it first with pink Copic markers and then added Ultra Fine Flower Soft in Raspberry Fizz. 
From here hop on over to Kelley Eubanks blog.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
