It's Official and Penny Black's Hedgehog Joy

It's Official......
I have the best hubster whom I love very much.
Why ?
He bought me a Cuttlebug LOL
Of course I love him dearly anyway.
Not a brand new one but I already love it to pieces and i've only used it today.
All I need now are dies but i'll be kind to his wallet and wait a little while.

I used my cuttlebug to finish off the card below for the Penny Black and more allsorts challenge blog.

Firstly I used a see-d background stamp in a pink whisper ink.
I then embossed with floral provocraft folder using my cuttlebug (love saying that)
Die cut some flowers and leaves using Marianne Design Creatables Die - Floral 3 LR0107 and a free paper from last months cardmaking and papercraft.
The ribbon and bow I made using the ribbon that tied my blank cards (yes i'm a cheapskate)
I then stamped Penny Black's Hedgehog Joy and coloured using my poundland pencils.
Growing fond of them now lol. Used a fiskars template to cut the circle and inked the edges using the same colour ink I used for the background.
Stamped and cut out a sentiment, inked the edges and used 3D sticky pads for the circle and sentiment and Anitas tacky glue for the flowers, ribbon and finished it off with some card candi in the center of each flower.

Can you tell yet what is missing ? Glitter. Yep. Not a single spec of glitter added. A first for me.
Also before anyone spots it. I embossed the card the wrong way round ROFL
Instead of the flowers popping out the front they are on the inside but hey ho you live and learn LOL

Thank you for looking.
