Sending Hugs

I am cutting it close with five hours left to the deadline at Just Us Girls. But that wouldn't stop me-so here it is. Fast and furious card for a few challenges

I knew I wanted to use die cuts so I can make that my focal point per the Paper Players challenge.  Originally I was planning on a newsprint paper background but that appeared too busy. So I decided to play in the Alphabet challenge over at the Less is More blog. For that I die cut multiple hugs out of  a cardstock and used the negative to create the background. A few layers of Hugs dies (and a lot of fingers) were glued together for a little bit of dimension. A ribbon, a button and that's it. 
I hope you enjoy it!
