Two hedgies

Good morning, all.  It's Friday again and that means it's time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week we have a fun sketch for you:
I love a good sketch and this one has so many possibilities.  We don't have a sponsor this week, but the winner will get to be a Guest Designer with us sometime during November.  How fun!
Here's my take on the sketch:

Aren't these two little hedgehogs cute?  They are not a Christmas image, but by adding some holiday colors, I think it works.  I've had the set for ages and this is only the second time I have pulled it out and inked it up.  I might have to try it again soon..  I tried using some frantage for the first time around the edges of the image panel.  I love the look when others do it, but I think I need to practice a bit.  I also added some to the gold snowflake hoping to give it just a bit of texture, but it mostly covered the whole thing.  Oh well, it helps with the gold accents.  I also colored my pearls with a gold paint pen .
