"Cute as cute Can be" A5 Hunkydory card.

Well I couldn't not blog a card from this weeks current pick of the week on create and craft by Hunkydory. This collection is just simple full of awwwww's. From the concept cards, toppers, background card and even the colour me images. It really will go such a long way. So many different occasions catered for in this collection and for all ages - yes it's cute, but it's not a sickly cute. What's great with the concept cards is you can cut them up and create your own cards using the elements. If you check out my card creations facebook page, you will see what I mean. The products I have used are;

Hunkydory products;
 Someone Special topper.
 Coordinated background card.
 Red Adorable Scorable.
 

Additional products;
 Centura Pearl card - Crafters Companion.
 13mm Satin Red ribbon - American Crafts.
