Year of the Brown Earth Dog

In the Chinese calendar, 2018 is a Year of the Brown Earth Dog. A friend recently got a dog, so I combined the occasions to make this for her. The hedgehog (Penny Black stamp) & gold-and-burgunday flowers are because she also has a hedgehog named Hedgie Potter!
I used my "Surprise Box" die set from Our Daily Bread Designs. I decorated it with two of my favorite papers from my stash.

The sentiment was cut from a paper covered with an adhesive sheet with a Spellbinders die and coated in flocking. I added brown Flowersoft to the dog (another Spellbinders die) & hedgehog.
