Hedgehogs in a Briar

"Two Hedgehogs (For Jackie and Sam)" Pencil 2011 Copyright Jessica Boehman
This is a design that I originally made for my former college roommate's thank you card for her wedding.  I modified it to be its own design.   I've been playing in my head with this idea for a while and I was glad to realize it for a friend.  I've been working with mirroring and knotwork since college, when I worked on my senior concentration.  The combination of hedgehogs and wildflowers is a motif common in Finland, where she now lives, but I modified it to have personal meaning as well.  I used roses, fiddlehead ferns and blackberries, all of which appeared in my own wedding bouquet.  I quite fancy this one.
