An autumn hedgehog

There were lots of hedgehogs round here in the spring but we haven't seen any of them for a while. Think they must all be hibernating early. The weather here in Sweden is definitely turning autumny so I thought I would do a card to match. The seasons seem much more defined here though, none of this swinging from summer to winter in one day! (or not yet anyway!) It's still quite a pleasant temperature and there's been little rain. This weekend we went looking for mushrooms in a nearby forest but we didn't find any edible ones this time.

Here is a cute little autumn card I made with a Little Claire stamp following their challenge theme with a sketch. I coloured it with pencils - it looks much better than this in real life, but it wouldn't photograph well at all. Still, reeeeeeeeeally wishing my promarkers weren't all packed in a box in a different country, but hopefully I can get them back in a few weeks when I come back over to England for the crafty weekend :-) The flowers were originally white so I coloured them with brick red distress inks and used some gorgeous sparkly brads for the centres which I got from my sister for my birthday :-)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Little Claire Challenge #37 - Autumn theme + sketch
