Penny Black Challenge- Buttons and Brads

The challenge over at Penny Black this week is to use buttons and brads on your card.   Here is the card I made for this challenge. 

I used the popular K & Co Designer Paper in my current favourite colour combinations of coral and pale turquoise for the backing, and the image of the cute little hedgie is coloured with Prisma pencils, using paper stumps and Sansodor to blend. The embossed ‘with love’ on the dark coral card is made with one of the Cuttlebug border embossing folders.  I edged this card with a dark red ink pad, and rubbed this lightly on the embossed words to highlight.  Everything is from my stash.
