Jade's Sparkling Butterflies Challenge Blog - 14 April 2016 - Buttons and bows

It is time for another challenge over at the Jade's Sparkling Butterflies Challenge Blog.  This fortnight the topic is "buttons and bows".

This fortnight we are lucky to have two sponsors:
For my card I have used the Lacy Sunshine Stamp called "Izzybella's Boo Spring Button Daisy" and I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and stamped around the background with a dotty stamp and a white chalk ink pad.

The backing papers were from a friend.  I use a piece of kraft card and first off I used a button mask and embossed through my Grand Caliber and then offset a bit and inked through the a button stencil with my Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry distress ink.

I have finished off the card with a doily, grosgrain ribbon, buttons, satin ribbon, die-cut sentiment and some pearls.
