The Sun has got his hat on! Hip hip hip HOORAY!

Hey all What AWESOME weather we have had the last few days!
Oh My how I love the sunshine! YAY!! he defiantly has his hat on!

Today I have a card for our New Challenge at Totally Gorjuss
The Theme is Lacy Lacey and we are Sponsored by Crafters Companion 
Crafters Companion
The image I am using is one of the gorgeous Hedgehogs from Dilly Beans soo cute
I have coloured the image with distress inks and added glossy accents to make a nice shiny nose, and then some pearls to the flower centres in the image,
the flower are from the Tattered floral die and I have reversed some card candies that had a pattern on the other side but I wanted the shimmery insides as it is a block colour.

I had some odd scraps of the papers left and wanted to decorate the back
so I cut them into strips and here is what I did.

Challenge I am entering with my card are:
