Simon Says Stamps "Challenge" and Blog Hop

This my entry for the Simon Says Stamps Challenge, you have to use two papers, three embellishments and one image, and I think this will definitely suit the bill.
The answer to the blog hop question is "Happy Hoppers" so I sincerely hope that this is ok to do it this way. My card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of yellow card with two papers from the Bearly Mine Extreme Designs Cd by Donna, and Ive also used a piece of punched out strip across the centre as a border. I then stamped a swirl and embossed it with gold embossing powder. Afterwards I mounted up my hedgies having a bath under the watering can on some green card and stuck it on my card towards the right, I should have said this image was coloured with my Faber Castell Polychromo pencils.
The flowers are Prima Hydrangea Petals with pearl brads and silver spacers, and before sticking them to my card Ive stuck a circle of punched out leaves, and hung a umbrella charm from the bottom one. The other two embellishments are the buttons at the top and bottom on my mount and the wateringcan on the left hand side.

This is beautiful Shirly.
I love the swirl you have stamped and embossed onto the paper - it looks like water running off from the image.
