Jump for Joy - (CTD462)

Hello!  It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  We've got some great fall colors to create with this week and we hope you'll play along.
 If you're a Lawn Fawn fan, you've probably seen several cards that look very similar to the card I'm sharing today using the Jump for Joy stamp set and Jump for Joy dies but I've wanted this set since last year and couldn't wait to create this fun scene.  The one thing that I can say is different other than a few added details is the fact that I created my own slider so that the cute hedgehog slides up and down the card front without using any slider dies.  I used some aqua mist cardstock for my background which I had blended on some peacock feathers distress ink, then I die cut my Little Picket Fence Border from kraft cardstock and used the Stitched Hillside Borders die cut from simply chartreuse cardstock.  I stamped a few corn stalks from the Happy Harvest set and tucked those behind the fence and then die cut the Leafy Tree Backdrop:Landscape die from a piece of the brown Knock on Wood paper pack and added foam tape to the back to pop it up.  Next I stamped part of my sentiment onto a Stitched Sentiment Strip and before adhering my Leafy Tree Backdrop, I used my Misti tool to stamp the second half of my sentiment onto my background piece. I stamped and colored all of my images with Copic markers then die cut them out.  To create my slider, I ended up cutting a small piece of white cardstock and added pieces of foam tape on the ends and attached this to the back of my hedgehog.  Then I took a piece of clear fishing line and attached that up under my popped up tree and fed the fishing line through the back of my hedgehog.  I added foam tape just around the edges of the pile of leaves, leaving a opening or pocket for the hedgehog to slide into and pulling the fishing line down straight, I removed the foam tape from the pile of leaves and attached it over the fishing line securing it in place.  It sounds more complicated than what it really is, it was actually very simple to do.  Below are pictures of what I was describing above and a quick video of how it works.
