A Little Hug...

Hello everyone...hope you are all enjoying your weekend!!  I have been a bit manic with work recently however this is the first weekend in a wee while that I haven't had to work so priorities right and a card was in the making!!

The lovely Abi sent me these papers and they are beautiful, gorgeous colours and right up my street...thank you my love!! So I hope you like what I have made with them...

So this is my favourite may have noticed, I sometimes do a wee variation it it though...the stamp is "A Little Hug" from Leanne Ellis at Sugar Nellie, the papers are MME - Hattie, the flowers have been cut with 2 different die-namics dies, the buttons have also been cut using a die-namics die. The hearts have been cut with my sizzix hearts I am not into valentines although I think this looks ok, non pink but with hearts.

I layers the papers onto kraft card and doodled around each of the edges of the layers, I also did a bit of distressing to the layers, I coloured the image with copics and then shaded with polychromos.  I layered the image onto the card and added a ribbon and tied a little bow at the side.  I attached a die cut button and charm, added the die cut flowers and hearts. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions which I thought matched the image well...

papers - MME Hattie
pens - copics
pencils - polychromos
pearls - The Hobby House
ribbon - The Ribbon Girl
die - sizzix heart
