Piling it on!!

Had a great reason to make a card today - a really lovely lady I know got engaged on Thursday!! Congratulations Lois and Kevin. Bursting to see the ring!!

I used this gorgeous Basic Grey Sugar Rush paper onto a folding card made using instructions I found here. Cute Penny Black image has been coloured using Promarkers and Polychromos pencils with Glossy Accents on the hearts. I don't know what it is about these hedgies - I just don't think they ever look as good coloured with Promarkers!! I have used a Martha Stewart punch for the border at the bottom and a sentiment from Cuddly Buddly. The lovely spotty bows are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here's a side view to get an idea of the fold

I am entering this card into a number of challenges:-

Wild Orchid Challenges - Ribbons and Bows
Spoonful of Sugar - Spots and Stripes
Penny Black Saturday - Don't be Square
Pile it On - Cute and Charming
Stamp Something - Celebrate

Thanks for stopping by.
