Hedge My Bets.

I thought I'd share a card that I made using a recent Magazine giveaway and some gorgeous goodies that my Secret Ladybug Santa sent me. It's surprising how easy it is to make a card when you've got a pile of scrumminess to use! The Papers are Making Memories Boho Chic,they are one sided so there was no feeling of guilt at choosing one design over another. 

I got out some Quickutz dies for the numbers and the butterfly,adding some glossy accents to the body.

I'm not big on embellishments usually but I was so excited to add a charm for the first time EVER! Thank you Santa,YOU DID GOOD!

At this  angle you can see the glossy accents on the nose and wellie boots of the hedgehog.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CCT 198,New,
LMMC26, New,
DTBST 106, Something New,
TTT,Out with Old,in with new,
Flutterby Wednesday 184,Include wings.
Happy Thursday,
Thanks for stopping by,
