Cute Hedgie & a Sketch

Wow! I have a fire under my butt this week! I can't remember the last time I made this many cards in a short time frame. Guess it helps that our family has many August birthdays. Anyway, I based this card on a Sweet Sketch Wednesday creation. As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew it had to be my next card! I don't think I have used this many layers before!
