Hessian Heart

My card today was made using a stamp from Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers.   I do love these little hedgies!  I have mounted it onto a heart die cut and then onto a heart die cut in hessian.   I used some kraft card and red gingham for the background and then embellished with a bow, snowflakes and buttons.

I am entering the following challenges:

"Bows" at Winter Wonderland
"Something beginning with B" (Bow, buttons) at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge
"Anything Goes" at Penny Black and More
