Pink makes everyone look pretty

I've got a stash of digi images that I've coloured (and in some cases even matted) but never used. So I'm making a concerted effort to make use of them rather than colour new. In some cases, such as this one, I can't imagine why I haven't used the image earlier.
This sweet little hedgehog from Phindy's Place is so adorable in all her finery that even the flies buzzing around her head seem to be lovely. I thought this image would be perfect for a little girl and so I made the card with an assortment of Basic Grey papers (from "Lemonade" set) that are just super feminine. I added a touch of glitter to the flies and a few coloured pearls in the bottom corner.

I'll be donating this card to Cards for Kids as either a "birthday" or "just because you're special" card. If you aren't familiar with Cards for Kids (and it is a brand-new initiative so you probably aren't), we are collecting hand-made greeting cards that can be given to hospitalized children who are unlucky enough to be in hospital over their birthday or other special day. I really encourage you to check out the site and if donate a card or two!

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - anything goes
Quirky Crafts - in the springtime garden (the hedgehog you find in your garden may not be wearing a pink & green dress but mine is - lol)
2 Sisters - flowers (this paper is overflowing with flowers)
