Hugs card

A really quick card for tonight.

The picture hasn't come out great, which is a shame as it makes the card look quite tatty whereas it doesn't look like that at all in person! odd!

I'm sending it to a friend of mine who has made the decision to end her marriage :(

The flower motif is a rub-on transfer on white paper distressed around the edge and then inked with distress ink spun sugar, then backed on a pink piece of cardstock also edged with spun sugar. I scrumpled up a piece of spare card and inked with distress stain victorian velvet, and splodged victorian velvet on to a tag. I then stamped the sentiment on top with dusty conchord and stuck it all down. Easy.

I am disappointed with the photo though! Maybe I'll try one in natural light tomorrow.

I'm entering this into the following challenges
