Craft for the Craic - Heart Challenge

Am very excited - this is my first post the IRISH blog Craft for the Craic
For those of you visiting from foreign shores - 'Craic' in Ireland means fun.
Now thats been explained, the challenge was 'HEARTS and here's what I came up with.

This little 'me to you' bear was die cut and layered up using foam pads. A piece of card stock was embossed, coloured with pan pastels and placed under the image to make it stand out. The card was then embellished with a trio of various sized pearls, a velvet ribbon and twinkley hearts.
The heart theme continued on the inside with the stickers. A second piece of cardstock was embossed, a heart shape die-cut out of it. Finally  for fun I added a wee angel charm that can be hung out of a mobile phone. To ensure that it all sits nicely, I put a pleat into the fold\spine - this allows for the card to close neatly over the bulk of the angel. Hope you like it
