Heart balloons

Good Saturday afternoon to you all

The challenge at Penny Black and more is embossing, stencils or masks and here is my card for the challenge - 
I began by covering a 5 x 7 inch card blank with some red coredinations and then embossing a piece of white centura pearl with a clouds embossing folder from Crafter's Companion.
Not sure how clear this photo is but hopefully you should be able to make out the clouds.
The image is a Penny Black one called Hedgehog Kisses which I treated myself to after Christmas.
I coloured the image with the following Spectrum Noir pens and pencils - 
  • balloons - CR7, CR9, CR11, 026 and blender
  • hedgehogs - FS1, FS6, FS8, FS9, EB4, EB6, EB8, 104, 004 and 009
  • sky - IB1 and 061
I cut the image out and matted it onto a Spellbinder's Reflective Moments cut from red Core'dinations. I then attached the topper to the card base with foam pads.
The whole thing looked a little clean and simple for my liking so I added a very messy bow (mine never look neat)  and a heart charm (both from the Ribbon Girl).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - - January challenge -stencils, masks and embossing folders
