Hedgehog for Monkey Animal

My rabbit card didn't win the Monkey Princess badge, but I got invited to be a future guest designer on A La Card Monkey!  See THIS post.  I'm so excited!!!  I don't know what it all involves.  But I'm sure it'll be lots of fun!  Stay tuned!

This week's challenge is animal plus sketch.  HERE's the challenge:
Here's my card:
I decided to use Hedgehog Happiness set from 2000.  Yes, I know it's a very old set.  BUT, I love these hedgehogs!  Of course it's been long since retired.  But that doesn't mean they can't come out to play once in awhile, right?  I figured, in honor of last day of Occasions Mini, I would use this totally awesome Springtime Vintage DSP once more.  I used my Cr*cut to cut the large circle.  I used the brand new Triple Layer punch for the flower on the bottom right.  Since I'm using a retired stamp set, I figured what's another retired item to use on the card, right?  I used the Pretty in Pink Epoxy Brad as the center of the flower.

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Hedgehog Happiness (retired)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Papers:  Pear Pizzazz, Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Baja Breeze, Springtime Vintage DSP
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Sponge, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch, Epoxy Brad (retired), Cr*cut

What a cute hedgehog...I used one, too, for my first time participating in an A La Card Monkey sketch! Love your use of the new bouquet triple layer punch!

How cute is this!!Nothing is cuter then a gardening hedgehog! :) It is always a good thing to bring the retired stamps out to play, I completely agree! (Especially the super cute ones!) I love the colors you used and I really like those layered border punches!
