Hedgie Spreads Some Love

Afternoon all .... just where has the weekend gone?  Before I know it I will be back at work!  Just a quick make to show today for many challenges.

Phew there's alot there today! 

For this card I used:-
  • DCWV Paper - this was a multi coloured sheet, but as I wanted red dots, used my Sakura Ruby Red Glitter Pen over them all
  • Penny Black Sweet Surrender Stamp
  • Glitter Paper
  • E-Z Rub-On Greeting
  • Promarkers
  • American Crafts Velvet Ribbon
  • Cardstock using Sizzix Hearts Texture Plate
  • Heart Gem from Stash
Thanks for popping in, hope you have had a fab weekend!
