Hedgehog and Ladybug Friends Card for Jaimie

I have chosen to send this card to Jaimie.  You can read her story here:  http://spreadthelove-forjaimie.blogspot.com/





I decided to try out a challenge over at High Hopes and create a cute hedgehog card. You don't see nearly as many of these around as you did a year ago, but I still think they are cute and enjoy making them once in awhile. The challenge was to make a card using lots of polka dots. What better card with polka dots than one with a ladybug theme. So, I used a black and white polka dot ribbon, polka dot flowers, some pearl gemstones as dots and round/scalloped nestabilities. I think I did what I was suppose to. I've never done a challenge with High Hopes before, so I hope I did everything right. I am also entering this into the Creative Card Crew challenge this week which requested to use ribbon. It was fun to be able to find two challenges to fit this card into. Thanks for having a look at it, and I would love to know what you think.
Have a great day!
