Kelly has an admirer ...

I was pottering round in my craft room making this card

When my son came in, looked over my shoulder and said "Wow, gorgeous". I thought for a moment he meant my card but no, he meant Kelly with her hot water bottle lol. He's asked if I can do a life size one for his bedroom - I don't think his girlfriend would be too pleased about that though.
Anyway back to the card which is for this weeks challenge from Nicola at Pretty in Ink which is a sketch. I've used Nicola's digi stamp coloured with promarkers, some scraps of backing paper (i think from a Making Memories scrapbook kit) a couple of little pink brads and a few buttons. I had to add the 'Heartbreaker'  sticker after my son's comments lol
This card is also for the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew who have a 'Going Dotty' challenge this week
Crafty Creations where the challenge is 'Spots and Dots'
and the One Stop Craft Challenge who are also challenging us to use spots and dots
Thanks for looking
