Buttons & Bows…

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you today is ‘B is for Buttons & Bows’. You will need to have at least ONE Button & ONE Bow on your creation to be eligible to enter.

I’ve used the cute Chloe with Daisy on my card today.


I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


For my ‘Bow’ I’ve use the new Bow Punch from Stampin’ Up. I have added a Vintage Faceted Button on top which has a little Baker’s Twine threaded through and tied in a bow.

Here’s one last look.
