Hogs & Kisses - Color Dare #344

Here is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #344 Inspiration Board.  Rather than going with the theme for this color challenge decided to just use the colors in the Inspiration Board.  

Stamped the Hedgehog, colored with a variety of Copic Sketch Brush pens, and then fussy-cut both hedgehogs.  A scalloped doily was placed on the background paper and then adhered the hedgehogs using foam tape for dimension.  Often when I do critters I check out the "Punny" stamps from CTMH for the sentiment...this one fit hedgehogs even though it was intended for hogs (pigs) as intended.  Stamped the sentiment on a stitched heart speech bubble, layered with cranberry for the die cut heart in the bubble.  

FUN FACT: The hair on the back of a hedgehog is a thick layer of spikes (or modified hairs) known as quills. These quills are made of keratin, the same stuff our hair and fingernails are made of.  And hope my fussy-cutting shows the layer of spikes.
